To keep everyone who's interested up-to-date, attached is the latest 
patch. The big addition is documentation. I added a section in the 
"Physical Database Layout" chapter about the new FSM, and removed 
references to the max_fsm_relations/pages options, plus some other small 

I also moved some the one debugging function to peek into an FSM page at 
low level to contrib/pageinspect, and updated the documentation of 
pg_freespacemap and pageinspect to match the code.

I find it a bit disturbing that a documentation patch actually removes 
more lines from the manual than adds, but it's quite understandable 
because it's no longer necessary to explain the two GUC options that 
used to be quite important :-). Comments welcome.
