Read Only Scalability Patch

Simon Riggs of 2nd Quadrant recently submitted a patch for testing which should improve read only scalability of Postgres. I took it for a test drive for my setup. In the first set of tests I used the same benchmark as previous ones so as to have the same reference point.

It seems changing the Number of Buffer Partitions for this workload does not have any impact. My dataset for this iGen benchmark is pretty small and should easily fit under 2GB size and hence may not be stressing the buffer partitions too much to warrant bigger number. The patch still helps to get good healthy 4-6% gain in peak values.
