Commit d2086b08b02 removed almost all cases where nbtree must release a
read buffer lock and acquire a write buffer lock instead, so remaining
cases in which that's still necessary are not notable enough to appear
in the nbtree README.
More importantly, holding on to a buffer pin in cases where nbtree must
trade a read lock for a write lock is very unlikely to save any I/O.
This seems to have been a long overlooked throwback to a time when
nbtree cared about write-ordering dependencies, and performed
synchronous buffer writes. It hasn't worked that way in many years.
