What's going on here is that array_map thinks it can use fn_extra of the
passed FmgrInfo for its own purposes. That means that if the function
to be called tries to use fn_extra for *its* own purposes, we have a
conflict that is going to lead to core dumps in most cases. In other
words, array_map pretty much doesn't work for calling anything except
I think the best solution to this is to require array_map's caller to
provide the state storage array_map wants, instead of doing it locally.
Both of the existing callers can easily incorporate array_map's state
data into their own state structs. Joe, you have any better ideas?
