Hi Hackers,

I revised the patch like this:

- Add "command" column in the view
It tells that the running command is CLUSTER or VACUUM FULL.

- Enable VACUUM FULL progress monitor
Add heap_tuples_vacuumed and heap_tuples_recently_dead as a counter in the view.
Sequence of phases are below:
1. scanning heap
5. swapping relation files
6. rebuild index
7. performing final cleanup

I didn't change the name of view (pg_stat_progress_cluster) because I'm not sure
whether the new name (pg_stat_progress_reorg) is suitable or not.

Any comments or suggestion are welcome.
