Thanks for the review, Andrew. And I completely forgot that this is at
the beginning of the page.

I have switched also the online check so as it also looks at the full
range of blocks instead of only the last one.

Thanks! I am stealing that stuff, and I have added an offline check by
comparing the value of minRecoveryPoint in pg_controldata. Again, if
