It looks to me like IndexSupportInitialize and index_getprocid have
different ideas about whether procnum or attnum is the major index
of the array :-(.  Change one or the other.

indexRelation->rd_am->amsupport, cf. InitIndexStrategy.

islossy is a per-index attribute, not a per-column attribute.  I don't
think it makes sense to define it any other way.  If any one of the
columns is stored in a lossy fashion, then the index is lossy.
