I think it should be you that comes up with a fix, not for me to
respond to your concerns about how hard it is. Many things that don't
fully work are rejected for that reason.
Having said that, I have input that seems to solve the problem.
Many WAL records have latestRemovedXid on them. We can use the same
idea with XLOG_HEAP2_VISIBLE records, so we add a field to send the
latest vacrelstats->latestRemovedXid. That then creates a recovery
snapshot conflict that would cancel any query that might then see a
page of the vis map that was written when the xmin was later than on
the standby. If replication disconnects briefly and a vimap bit is
updated that would cause a problem, just as the same situation would
cause a problem because of other record types.
If problem solved then we can enable IndexOnlyScans on standby.
