This is a WIP cost balancing patch built on autovacuum-multiworkers-5.patch.
The total cost of workers are adjusted to autovacuum_vacuum_cost_delay.
I added copy of worker's cost parameters to the shared WorkerInfo array.
A launcher and each worker reads and writes the copied parameters when
a worker starts a vacuum job or exit the process. Workers assign their local
VacuumCostDelay from the shared value every sleep in vacuum_delay_point().
I agree that "mb_per_second" or "io_per_second" are easier to use than
present cost delay parameters, but we need more research to move to it.
I think it is better to keep "cost_limit" and "cost_delay" as of 8.3,
but we need cost-balanced multiworkers at any rate.
