I'm not sure how much the two instructions in AllocSetAlloc
actually impacts, but I agree that it is doubtful that the
size-limit feature worth the possible slowdown in any extent.

Mmm. Scoping to the negcache prolem, my very first patch posted
two-years ago does that based on invalidation for pg_statistic
and pg_class, like I think Tom have suggested somewhere in this
This is completely different approach from the current shape and
it would be useless after pruning is introduced. So I'd like to
go for the generic pruning by age.
Difference from v15:
Removed AllocSet accounting stuff. We use approximate memory
size for catcache.
Removed prune-by-number(or size) stuff.
Adressing comments from Tsunakawa-san and Ideriha-san .
Separated catcache monitoring feature. (Removed from this set)
(But it is crucial to check this feature...)
Is this small enough ?
