1. Did you consider an option to yield explicitly in recovery code when
it skips rows? If they are being skipped, it does not matter what are
their transaction borders.

Then the whole patch would be to add the yield once per WAL_ROWS_PER_YIELD
to recovery_scan(), correct?

2. This must be static.

3. But why do you need to imitate it? Does it mean if the files are
too small to yield even once in each, but in total their number is
huge, there won't be yields?

Also does it mean "1M rows processed" was not ever printed in that
case?
