pgsql: During heap rebuild, lock any TOAST index until end of transacti

Noah Misch-2
During heap rebuild, lock any TOAST index until end of transaction.

swap_relation_files() calls toast_get_valid_index() to find and lock
this index, just before swapping with the rebuilt TOAST index.  The
latter function releases the lock before returning.  Potential for
mischief is low; a concurrent session can issue ALTER INDEX ... SET
(fillfactor = ...), which is not alarming.  Nonetheless, changing
pg_class.relfilenode without a lock is unconventional.  Back-patch to
9.5 (all supported versions), because another fix needs this.
