22  * Data about a currently-open large object.
23  *
24  * id is the logical OID of the large object
25  * snapshot is the snapshot to use for read/write operations
26  * subid is the subtransaction that opened the desc (or currently owns it)
27  * offset is the current seek offset within the LO
28  * flags contains some flag bits
29  *
30  * NOTE: as of v11, permission checks are made when the large object is
31  * opened; therefore IFS_RDLOCK/IFS_WRLOCK indicate that read or write mode
32  * has been requested *and* the corresponding permission has been checked.
33  *
34  * NOTE: before 7.1, we also had to store references to the separate table
35  * and index of a specific large object. Now they all live in pg_largeobject
36  * and are accessed via a common relation descriptor.

57  * We could set this as high as BLCKSZ less some overhead, but it seems
58  * better to make it a smaller value, so that not as much space is used
59  * up when a page-tuple is updated. Note that the value is deliberately
60  * chosen large enough to trigger the tuple toaster, so that we will
61  * attempt to compress page tuples in-line. (But they won't be moved off
62  * unless the user creates a toast-table for pg_largeobject...)
63  *
64  * Also, it seems to be a smart move to make the page size be a power of 2,
65  * since clients will often be written to send data in power-of-2 blocks.
66  * This avoids unnecessary tuple updates caused by partial-page writes.
