Yes. The point of the existing coding is to ensure that we don't
overestimate the table age at which vacuums should be forced.
Bruce's proposed change would move the inaccuracy in the wrong
direction, and thus cause some cases to not force autovac though an
exact calculation would have done so. It's not worth trying to be
exactly correct here, but I don't think that we want to err in
If we had a symbol for the max normal XID, we could instead code
if (xidForceLimit < FirstNormalTransactionId)
xidForceLimit = LastNormalTransactionId;
But AFAIR we don't, and I don't especially want to introduce one,
because people might be misled by it. As you mentioned earlier,
the XID space is circular so there isn't really a "last" XID.
