Thanks. Currently we cannot use "skipped-frozen" to see the
effect of ALL_FROZEN.

I forgot that. The patch adds the mode indication in the first
message of VACUUM VERBOSE.
| =# vacuum freeze verbose it;
| INFO: vacuuming "public.it" in aggressive mode
| INFO: "it": found 0 removable, 0 nonremovable row versions in 0 out of 0 pages
| Skipped 0 pages due to buffer pins, 0 frozen pages.
I still feel a bit uneasy about the word "aggressive" here. Is it
