Per Alvaro's request in another thread, I've rebased these patches on his
patch to refactor HeapSatisfiesHOTandKeyUpdate(). I've also attached that
patch here for easy reference.

The fixes based on bug reports by Jaime are also included in this patch
set. Other than that there are not any significant changes. The patch still
disables WARM on system tables, something I would like to fix. But I've
been delaying that because it will require changes at several places since
indexes on system tables are managed separately. In addition to that, the
patch only works with btree and hash indexes. We must implement the recheck
method for other index types so as to support them.
