Can SELECT lo_create(16385); help this situation?
It create an entry into pg_largeobject_metadata, but does not touch
pg_largeobject because it is empty in the initial state.
But, in this case, pg_migrator already bring only data chunks to
pg_largeobject. So, this operation enables to recombine orphan chunks
and a metadata entry.
I'm not clear whether we also check pg_largeobejct has chunks with same
LOID on lo_create(). In the regular operation, it shall never happen.
