I updated the patches for GIN, BRIN, and SP-GiST to include the following

1. Pass REGBUF_STNADARD flag when registering the metapage buffer

2. Pass true for page_std argument of log_newpage() or
log_newpage_buffer() when using it to log the metapage

3. Update comment near where pd_lower is set in the respective metapages,
similar to what Amit K did in his patches for btree and hash metapages.

Did I miss something from the discussion?
