Even if we find the issue with large shared buffers, we still can't dedicate serious amounts of memory to them because of work_mem issues. Granted, that's something else on the TODO list, but it really seems like we're re-inventing the wheels that the OS has already created here...
The problem is that the OS doesn't offer any mechanism that would
allow us to obey the WAL-before-data rule.
