Bug Fixes:  
  
* Fixed an issue an where an extraneous remote was created causing threaded backup/restore to possibly timeout and/or throw a lock conflict. (Reported by Michael Vitale.)  
* Fixed an issue where db-path was not required for the check command so an assert was raised when it was missing rather than a polite error message. (Reported by Michael Vitale.)  
* Fixed check command to throw an error when database version/id does not match that of the archive. (Fixed by Cynthia Shang.)  
* Fixed an issue where a remote could try to start its own remote when the backup-host option was not present in pgbackrest.conf on the database server. (Reported by Lardière Sébastien.)  
* Fixed an issue where the contents of pg_xlog were being backed up if the directory was symlinked. This didn't cause any issues during restore but was a waste of space.  
* Fixed an invalid log() call in lock routines.  
  
Features:  
  
* Experimental support for non-exclusive backups in PostgreSQL 9.6 beta3. Changes to the control/catalog/WAL versions in subsequent betas may break compatibility but pgBackRest will be updated with each release to keep pace.  
  
Refactoring:  
  
* Enhancements to the protocol layer for improved reliability and error handling.  
* All remote types now take locks. The exceptions date to when the test harness and pgBackRest were running in the same VM and no longer apply.  
* Exceptions are now passed back from threads as messages when possible rather than raised directly.  
* Temp files created during backup are now placed in the same directory as the target file.  
* Output lock file name when a lock cannot be acquired to aid in debugging.  
* Reduce calls to protocolGet() in backup/restore.  
* Suppress banners on SSH protocol connections.  
* Improved remote error messages to identify the host where the error was raised.  
  

Fixed an issue where a remote could try to start its own remote.

This is a better approach than 93320b8 (reverted in this commit) because it ensures that the remote type will be none so any functions that utilize optionRemoteTypeTest will work correctly.  
  
This bug was only an issue when backup-host was not properly configured on the database host.  
  

Disable control master for older OS versions where it is less stable.
