I don't much care for using a new field in the control file for this.
First, it seems like a big modularity violation to store a gist-specific
counter in the control file. Second, you'd be generating a lot of
traffic on the ControlFileLock. It's not heavily contended at the
moment, but when the control file is updated, it's held over an fsync,
which could cause unnecessary stalls to insertions to unlogged gist
tables. And it's just a bad idea to share a lock for two things with
completely different characteristics in general.
Could we stash the counter e.g. in the root page of the index?
