On further thought, btbuild is not that badly broken at the moment,
because CREATE INDEX acquires ShareLock on the relation, so there can be
no concurrent writers at the page level. Still, it seems like it'd be a
good idea to do "LockBuffer(buffer, BUFFER_LOCK_SHARE)" here, and
probably also to invoke HeapTupleSatisfiesNow() via the
HeapTupleSatisfies() macro so that infomask update is checked for.
Vadim, what do you think?
