AlterSubscription_refresh: avoid stomping on global variable

This patch replaces use of the global "wrconn" variable in  
AlterSubscription_refresh with a local variable of the same name, making  
it consistent with other functions in subscriptioncmds.c (e.g.  
DropSubscription).  
  
The global wrconn is only meant to be used for logical apply/tablesync worker.  
Abusing it this way is known to cause trouble if an apply worker  
manages to do a subscription refresh, such as reported by Jeremy Finzel  
and diagnosed by Andres Freund back in November 2020, at  
https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/20201111215820.qihhrz7fayu6myfi@alap3.anarazel.de  
  
Backpatch to 10.  In branch master, also move the connection establishment  
to occur outside the PG_TRY block; this way we can remove a test for NULL in  
PG_FINALLY, and it also makes the code more consistent with similar code in  
the same file.

Mention specifically that you can't call aggregates, window functions,  
or procedures this way (the inability to call SRFs was already  
mentioned).  
  
Also, the claim that PQfn doesn't support NULL arguments or results  
has been a lie since we invented protocol 3.0.  Not sure why this  
text was never updated for that, but do it now.

Reject aggregates, window functions, and procedures.  Aggregates  
failed anyway, though with a somewhat obscure error message.  
Window functions would hit an Assert or null-pointer dereference.  
Procedures seemed to work as long as you didn't try to do  
transaction control, but (a) transaction control is sort of the  
point of a procedure, and (b) it's not entirely clear that no  
bugs lurk in that path.  Given the lack of testing of this area,  
it seems safest to be conservative in what we support.  
  
Also reject proretset functions, as the fastpath protocol can't  
support returning a set.  
  
Also remove an easily-triggered assertion that the given OID  
isn't 0; the subsequent lookups can handle that case themselves.  
  
Per report from Theodor-Arsenij Larionov-Trichkin.  
Back-patch to all supported branches.  (The procedure angle  
only applies in v11+, of course.)

Fix some more omissions in pg_upgrade's tests for non-upgradable types.

Commits 29aeda6e4 et al closed up some oversights involving not checking  
for non-upgradable types within container types, such as arrays and  
ranges.  However, I only looked at version.c, failing to notice that  
there were substantially-equivalent tests in check.c.  (The division  
of responsibility between those files is less than clear...)  
  
In addition, because genbki.pl does not guarantee that auto-generated  
rowtype OIDs will hold still across versions, we need to consider that  
the composite type associated with a system catalog or view is  
non-upgradable.  It seems unlikely that someone would have a user  
column declared that way, but if they did, trying to read it in another  
PG version would likely draw "no such pg_type OID" failures, thanks  
to the type OID embedded in composite Datums.  
  
To support the composite and reg*-type cases, extend the recursive  
query that does the search to allow any base query that returns  
a column of pg_type OIDs, rather than limiting it to exactly one  
starting type.  
  
As before, back-patch to all supported branches.

Attempting to use this function with event triggers failed, as, since  
its introduction in a676201, this code has never associated an object  
name with event triggers.  This addresses the failure by adding the  
event trigger name to the set defining its object address.  
  
Note that regression tests are added within event_trigger and not  
object_address to avoid issues with concurrent connections in parallel  
schedules.

For some reason, the "julian" option for extract()/date_part() has  
never gotten listed in the manual.  Also, while Appendix B mentioned  
in passing that we don't conform to the usual astronomical definition  
that a Julian date starts at noon UTC, it was kind of vague about what  
we do instead.  Clarify that, and add an example showing how to get  
the astronomical definition if you want it.

Previously it was documented that if using "-X none" option there was  
no guarantee that all required WAL files were archived at the end of  
pg_basebackup when taking a backup from the standby. But this limitation  
was removed by commit 52f8a59dd9. Now, even when taking a backup  
from the standby, pg_basebackup can wait for all required WAL files  
to be archived. Therefore this commit removes such obsolete  
description from the docs.  
  
Also this commit adds new description about the limitation when  
taking a backup from the standby, into the docs. The limitation is that  
pg_basebackup cannot force the standbfy to switch to a new WAL file  
at the end of backup, which may cause pg_basebackup to wait a long  
time for the last required WAL file to be switched and archived,  
especially when write activity on the primary is low.  
  
Back-patch to v10 where the issue was introduced.

In order to avoid getting old logfile contents certain functions in  
PostgresNode were doing one of two things. On Windows it rotated the  
logfile and restarted the server, while elsewhere it truncated the log  
file. Both of these are unnecessary. We borrow from the buildfarm which  
does this instead: note the size of the logfile before we start, and  
then when fetching the logfile skip to that position before accumulating  
contents. This is spelled differently on Windows but the effect is the  
same. This is largely centralized in TestLib's slurp_file function,  
which has a new optional parameter, the offset to skip to before  
starting to reading the file. Code in the client becomes much neater.

Most GUC check hooks that inspect database state have special checks  
that prevent them from throwing hard errors for state-dependent issues  
when source == PGC_S_TEST.  This allows, for example,  
"ALTER DATABASE d SET default_text_search_config = foo" when the "foo"  
configuration hasn't been created yet.  Without this, we have problems  
during dump/reload or pg_upgrade, because pg_dump has no idea about  
possible dependencies of GUC values and can't ensure a safe restore  
ordering.  
  
However, check_role() and check_session_authorization() hadn't gotten  
the memo about that, and would throw hard errors anyway.  It's not  
entirely clear what is the use-case for "ALTER ROLE x SET role = y",  
but we've now heard two independent complaints about that bollixing  
an upgrade, so apparently some people are doing it.  
  
Hence, fix these two functions to act more like other check hooks  
with similar needs.  (But I did not change their insistence on  
being inside a transaction, as it's still not apparent that setting  
either GUC from the configuration file would be wise.)  
  
Also fix check_temp_buffers, which had a different form of the disease  
of making state-dependent checks without any exception for PGC_S_TEST.  
A cursory survey of other GUC check hooks did not find any more issues  
of this ilk.  (There are a lot of interdependencies among  
PGC_POSTMASTER and PGC_SIGHUP GUCs, which may be a bad idea, but  
they're not relevant to the immediate concern because they can't be  
set via ALTER ROLE/DATABASE.)  
  
Per reports from Charlie Hornsby and Nathan Bossart.  Back-patch  
to all supported branches.

There are hacks in parse_coerce.c to push down a requested coercion  
to below any CollateExpr that may appear.  However, we did that even  
if the requested data type is non-collatable, leading to an invalid  
expression tree in which CollateExpr is applied to a non-collatable  
type.  The fix is just to drop the CollateExpr altogether, reasoning  
that it's useless.  
  
This bug is ten years old, dating to the original addition of  
COLLATE support.  The lack of field complaints suggests that there  
aren't a lot of user-visible consequences.  We noticed the problem  
because it would trigger an assertion in DefineVirtualRelation if  
the invalid structure appears as an output column of a view; however,  
in a non-assert build, you don't see a crash just a (subtly incorrect)  
complaint about applying collation to a non-collatable type.  I found  
that by putting the incorrect structure further down in a view, I could  
make a view definition that would fail dump/reload, per the added  
regression test case.  But CollateExpr doesn't do anything at run-time,

Fix out-of-bound memory access for interval -> char conversion

Using Roman numbers (via "RM" or "rm") for a conversion to calculate a  
number of months has never considered the case of negative numbers,  
where a conversion could easily cause out-of-bound memory accesses.  The  
conversions in themselves were not completely consistent either, as  
specifying 12 would result in NULL, but it should mean XII.  
  
This commit reworks the conversion calculation to have a more  
consistent behavior:  
- If the number of months and years is 0, return NULL.  
- If the number of months is positive, return the exact month number.  
- If the number of months is negative, do a backward calculation, with  
-1 meaning December, -2 November, etc.

The code in bringetbitmap() simply added the whole matching page range  
to the TID bitmap, as determined by pages_per_range, even if some of the  
pages were beyond the end of the heap. The query then might fail with  
an error like this:  
  
  ERROR:  could not open file "base/20176/20228.2" (target block  
          262144): previous segment is only 131021 blocks  
  
In this case, the relation has 262093 pages (131072 and 131021 pages),  
but we're trying to acess block 262144, i.e. first block of the 3rd  
segment. At that point _mdfd_getseg() notices the preceding segment is  
incomplete, and fails.  
  
Hitting this in practice is rather unlikely, because:  
  
* Most indexes use power-of-two ranges, so segments and page ranges  
  align perfectly (segment end is also a page range end).  
  
* The table size has to be just right, with the last segment being  
  almost full - less than one page range from full segment, so that the  
  last page range actually crosses the segment boundary.  
  
* Prefetch has to be enabled. The regular page access checks that  
  pages are not beyond heap end, but prefetch does not. On older  
  releases (before 12) the execution stops after hitting the first  
  non-existent page, so the prefetch distance has to be sufficient  
  to reach the first page in the next segment to trigger the issue.  
  Since 12 it's enough to just have prefetch enabled, the prefetch  
  distance does not matter.  
  
Fixed by not adding non-existent pages to the TID bitmap. Backpatch  
all the way back to 9.6 (BRIN indexes were introduced in 9.5, but that  
release is EOL).

Maxim Orlov reported that the shutdown of standby server could result in  
the following assertion failure. The cause of this issue was that,  
when the shutdown caused the startup process to exit, recovery-time  
transaction tracking was not shut down even if it's already initialized,  
and some locks the tracked transactions were holding could not be released.  
At this situation, if other process was invoked and the PGPROC entry that  
the startup process used was assigned to it, it found such unreleased locks  
and caused the assertion failure, during the initialization of it.  
  
    TRAP: FailedAssertion("SHMQueueEmpty(&(MyProc->myProcLocks[i]))"  
  
This commit fixes this issue by making the startup process shut down  
transaction tracking and release all locks, at the exit of it.

The current instructions describing how to write the backup_label and  
tablespace_map files are confusing.  For example, opening a file in text  
mode on Windows and copy-pasting the file's contents would result in a  
failure at recovery because of the extra CRLF characters generated.  The  
documentation was not stating that clearly, and per discussion this is  
not considered as a supported scenario.  
  
This commit extends a bit the documentation to mention that it may be  
required to open the file in binary mode before writing its data.

Despite the clear comments pointing out that the duplicative code  
segments in ReadHead() and _discoverArchiveFormat() needed to be  
in sync, they were not: the latter did not bother to apply any of  
the sanity checks in the former.  We'd missed noticing this partly  
because none of those checks would fail in scenarios we customarily  
test, and partly because the oversight would be masked if both  
segments execute, which they would in cases other than needing to  
autodetect the format of a non-seekable stdin source.  However,  
in a case meeting all these requirements --- for example, trying  
to read a newer-than-supported archive format from non-seekable  
stdin --- pg_restore missed applying the version check and would  
likely dump core or otherwise misbehave.  
  
The whole thing is silly anyway, because there seems little reason  
to duplicate the logic beyond the one-line verification that the  
file starts with "PGDMP".  There seems to have been an undocumented  
assumption that multiple major formats (major enough to require  
separate reader modules) would nonetheless share the first half-dozen  
fields of the custom-format header.  This seems unlikely, so let's  
fix it by just nuking the duplicate logic in _discoverArchiveFormat().  
  
Also get rid of the pointless attempt to seek back to the start of  
the file after successful autodetection.  That wastes cycles and  
it means we have four behaviors to verify not two.  
  
Per bug #16951 from Sergey Koposov.  This has been broken for  
decades, so back-patch to all supported versions.

Some sections of the documentation used "exclusive lock" to describe  
that an ACCESS EXCLUSIVE lock is taken during a given operation.  This  
can be confusing to the reader as ACCESS SHARE is allowed with an  
EXCLUSIVE lock is used, but that would not be the case with what is  
described on those parts of the documentation.

The new appendix groups information on renamed or removed settings,  
commands, etc into an out-of-the-way part of the docs.  
  
The original id elements are retained in each subsection to ensure that  
the same filenames are produced for HTML docs. This prevents /current/  
links on the web from breaking, and allows users of the web docs  
to follow links from old version pages to info on the changes in the  
new version. Prior to this change, a link to /current/ for renamed  
sections like the recovery.conf docs would just 404. Similarly if  
someone searched for recovery.conf they would find the pg11 docs,  
but there would be no /12/ or /current/ link, so they couldn't easily  
find out that it was removed in pg12 or how to adapt.  
  
Index entries are also added so that there's a breadcrumb trail for  
users to follow when they know the old name, but not what we changed it  
to. So a user who is trying to find out how to set standby_mode in  
PostgreSQL 12+, or where pg_resetxlog went, now has more chance of  
finding that information.

When estimating the number of groups using extended statistics, the code  
was discarding information about system attributes. This led to strange  
situation that

could have produced higher estimate (equal to pg_class.reltuples) than

Jasen Betts reported yet another unintended side effect of commit  
85c54287a: reconnecting with "\c service=whatever" did not have the  
expected results.  The reason is that starting from the output of  
PQconndefaults() effectively allows environment variables (such  
as PGPORT) to override entries in the service file, whereas the  
normal priority is the other way around.  
  
Not using PQconndefaults at all would require yet a third main code  
path in do_connect's parameter setup, so I don't really want to fix  
it that way.  But we can have the logic effectively ignore all the  
default values for just a couple more lines of code.  
  
This patch doesn't change the behavior for "\c -reuse-previous=on  
service=whatever".  That remains significantly different from before  
85c54287a, because many more parameters will be re-used, and thus  
not be possible for service entries to replace.  But I think this  
is (mostly?) intentional.  In any case, since libpq does not report  
where it got parameter values from, it's hard to do differently.  
  
Per bug #16936 from Jasen Betts.  As with the previous patches,  
back-patch to all supported branches.  (9.5 is unfortunately now  
out of support, so this won't get fixed there.)

pg_waldump: Fix bug in per-record statistics.

pg_waldump --stats=record identifies a record by a combination  
of the RmgrId and the four bits of the xl_info field of the record.  
But XACT records use the first bit of those four bits for an optional  
flag variable, and the following three bits for the opcode to  
identify a record. So previously the same type of XACT record  
could have different four bits (three bits are the same but the  
first one bit is different), and which could cause  
pg_waldump --stats=record to show two lines of per-record statistics  
for the same XACT record. This is a bug.  
  
This commit changes pg_waldump --stats=record so that it processes  
only XACT record differently, i.e., filters the opcode out of xl_info  
and uses a combination of the RmgrId and those three bits as  
the identifier of a record, only for XACT record. For other records,  
the four bits of the xl_info field are still used.

The test added by 595b9cb forgot that on Windows it is necessary to set  
up pg_hba.conf (see PostgresNode::set_replication_conf) with a specific  
entry or base backups fail.  Any node that requires to support  
replication just needs to pass down allows_streaming at initialization.  
This updates the test to do so.  Simplify things a bit while on it.

Fix timeline assignment in checkpoints with 2PC transactions

Any transactions found as still prepared by a checkpoint have their  
state data read from the WAL records generated by PREPARE TRANSACTION  
before being moved into their new location within pg_twophase/.  While  
reading such records, the WAL reader uses the callback  
read_local_xlog_page() to read a page, that is shared across various  
parts of the system.  This callback, since 1148e22a, has introduced an  
update of ThisTimeLineID when reading a record while in recovery, which  
is potentially helpful in the context of cascading WAL senders.  
  
This update of ThisTimeLineID interacts badly with the checkpointer if a  
promotion happens while some 2PC data is read from its record, as, by  
changing ThisTimeLineID, any follow-up WAL records would be written to  
an timeline older than the promoted one.  This results in consistency  
issues.  For instance, a subsequent server restart would cause a failure  
in finding a valid checkpoint record, resulting in a PANIC, for  
instance.  
  
This commit changes the code reading the 2PC data to reset the timeline  
once the 2PC record has been read, to prevent messing up with the static  
state of the checkpointer.  It would be tempting to do the same thing  
directly in read_local_xlog_page().  However, based on the discussion  
that has led to 1148e22a, users may rely on the updates of  
ThisTimeLineID when a WAL record page is read in recovery, so changing  
this callback could break some cases that are working currently.  
  
A TAP test reproducing the issue is added, relying on a PITR to  
precisely trigger a promotion with a prepared transaction still  
tracked.

When loading DH parameters used for the generation of ephemeral DH keys  
in the backend, the code has never bothered releasing the memory used  
for the DH information loaded from a file or from libpq's default.  This  
commit makes sure that the information is properly free()'d.  
  
Back-patch of e0e569e1d.  We originally thought the leak was minor and  
not worth back-patching, but Jelte Fennema pointed out that repeated  
SIGHUP's can result in very serious bloat of the postmaster, which is  
then multiplied by being duplicated into eadh forked child.  
  
Back-patch to v10; the code looked different before c0a15e07c,  
and didn't have a leak in the actually-live code paths.

The text search cache mechanisms assume that we can clean up  
an invalidated dictionary cache entry simply by resetting the  
associated long-lived memory context.  However, that does not work  
for ispell affixes that make use of regular expressions, because  
the regex library deals in plain old malloc.  Hence, we leaked  
compiled regex(es) any time we dropped such a cache entry.  That  
could quickly add up, since even a fairly trivial regex can use up  
tens of kB, and a large one can eat megabytes.  Add a memory context  
callback to ensure that a regex gets freed when its owning cache  
entry is cleared.

Robert Foggia of Trustwave reported that read_tablespace_map()  
fails to prevent an overrun of its on-stack input buffer.  
Since the tablespace map file is presumed trustworthy, this does  
not seem like an interesting security vulnerability, but still  
we should fix it just in the name of robustness.  
  
While here, document that pg_basebackup's --tablespace-mapping option  
doesn't work with tar-format output, because it doesn't.  To make it  
work, we'd have to modify the tablespace_map file within the tarball  
sent by the server, which might be possible but I'm not volunteering.  
(Less-painful solutions would require changing the basebackup protocol  
so that the source server could adjust the map.  That's not very  
appetizing either.)

After reading the root cert list from the ssl_ca_file, immediately  
install it as client CA list of the new SSL context.  That gives the  
SSL context ownership of the list, so that SSL_CTX_free will free it.  
This avoids a permanent memory leak if we fail further down in  
be_tls_init(), which could happen if bogus CRL data is offered.  
  
The leak could only amount to something if the CRL parameters get  
broken after server start (else we'd just quit) and then the server  
is SIGHUP'd many times without fixing the CRL data.  That's rather  
unlikely perhaps, but it seems worth fixing, if only because the  
code is clearer this way.  
  
While we're here, add some comments about the memory management  
aspects of this logic.

psql's editing commands decide whether the user has edited the file  
by checking for change of modification timestamp.  This is probably  
fine for a pre-existing file, but with a temporary file that is  
created within the command, it's possible for a fast typist to  
save-and-exit in less than the one-second granularity of stat(2)  
timestamps.  On Windows FAT filesystems the granularity is even  
worse, 2 seconds, making the race a bit easier to hit.  
  
To fix, try to set the temp file's mod time to be two seconds ago.  
It's unlikely this would fail, but then again the race condition  
itself is unlikely, so just ignore any error.  
  
Also, we might as well check the file size as well as its mod time.  
  
While this is a difficult bug to hit, it still seems worth  
back-patching, to ensure that users' edits aren't lost.

GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY implies NOT NULL, but the code failed  
to complain if you overrode that with "GENERATED ALWAYS AS IDENTITY  
NULL".  One might think the old behavior was a feature, but it was

Commit 92785dac2 copied some logic related to advancement of inStart  
from pqParseInput3 into getRowDescriptions and getAnotherTuple,  
because it wanted to allow user-defined row processor callbacks to  
potentially longjmp out of the library, and inStart would have to be  
updated before that happened to avoid an infinite loop.  We later  
decided that that API was impossibly fragile and reverted it, but  
we didn't undo all of the related code changes, and this bit of  
messiness survived.  Undo it now so that there's just one place in  
pqParseInput3's processing where inStart is advanced; this will  
simplify addition of better tracing support.  
  
getParamDescriptions had grown similar processing somewhere along  
the way (not in 92785dac2; I didn't track down just when), but it's  
actually buggy because its handling of corrupt-message cases seems to  
have been copied from the v2 logic where we lacked a known message  
length.  The cases where we "goto not_enough_data" should not simply  
return EOF, because then we won't consume the message, potentially  
creating an infinite loop.  That situation now represents a  
definitively corrupt message, and we should report it as such.  
  
Although no field reports of getParamDescriptions getting stuck in  
a loop have been seen, it seems appropriate to back-patch that fix.  
I chose to back-patch all of this to keep the logic looking more alike  
in supported branches.

"SELECT pg_import_system_collations(0)" caused an assertion failure.  
With a random nonzero argument --- or indeed with zero, in non-assert  
builds --- it would happily make pg_collation entries with garbage  
values of collnamespace.  These are harmless as far as I can tell  
(unless maybe the OID happens to become used for a schema, later on?).  
In any case this isn't a security issue, since the function is  
superuser-only.  But it seems like a gotcha for unwary DBAs, so let's  
add a check that the given OID belongs to some schema.

Reinstate HEAP_XMAX_LOCK_ONLY|HEAP_KEYS_UPDATED as allowed

Commit 866e24d47db1 added an assert that HEAP_XMAX_LOCK_ONLY and  
HEAP_KEYS_UPDATED cannot appear together, on the faulty assumption that  
the latter necessarily referred to an update and not a tuple lock; but  
that's wrong, because SELECT FOR UPDATE can use precisely that  
combination, as evidenced by the amcheck test case added here.  
  
Remove the Assert(), and also patch amcheck's verify_heapam.c to not  
complain if the combination is found.  Also, out of overabundance of  
caution, update (across all branches) README.tuplock to be more explicit  
about this.

While poking at the regex code, I happened to notice that the bug  
squashed in commit afcc8772e had a sibling: next() failed to return  
a specific value associated with the '}' token for a "\{m,n\}"  
quantifier when parsing in basic RE mode.  Again, this could result  
in treating the quantifier as non-greedy, which it never should be in  
basic mode.  For that to happen, the last character before "\}" that  
sets "nextvalue" would have to set it to zero, or it'd have to have  
accidentally been zero from the start.  The failure can be provoked  
repeatably with, for example, a bound ending in digit "0".  
  
Like the previous patch, back-patch all the way.

FreeBSD 13 gained O_DSYNC, which would normally cause wal_sync_method to  
choose open_datasync as its default value.  That may not be a good  
choice for all systems, and performs worse than fdatasync in some  
scenarios.  Let's preserve the existing default behavior for now.

supported releases.

While cleaning up after a parallel query or parallel index creation that  
created temporary files, we could be interrupted by a statement timeout.  
The error handling path would then fail to clean up the files when it  
ran dsm_detach() again, because the callback was already popped off the  
list.  Prevent this hazard by holding interrupts while the cleanup code  
runs.  
  
Thanks to Heikki Linnakangas for this suggestion, and also to Kyotaro  
Horiguchi, Masahiko Sawada, Justin Pryzby and Tom Lane for discussion of  
this and earlier ideas on how to fix the problem.  
  
Back-patch to all supported releases.

Modern gcc and clang compilers offer alignment sanitizers, which help to detect  
pointer misalignment.  However, our codebase already contains x86-specific  
crc32 computation code, which uses unalignment access.  Thankfully, those  
compilers also support the attribute, which disables alignment sanitizers at  
the function level.  This commit adds pg_attribute_no_sanitize_alignment(),  
which wraps this attribute, and applies it to pg_comp_crc32c_sse42() function.  
  
Back-patch of commits 993bdb9f9 and ad2ad698a, to enable doing  
alignment testing in all supported branches.

Avoid divide-by-zero in regex_selectivity() with long fixed prefix.

Given a regex pattern with a very long fixed prefix (approaching 500  
characters), the result of pow(FIXED_CHAR_SEL, fixed_prefix_len) can  
underflow to zero.  Typically the preceding selectivity calculation  
would have underflowed as well, so that we compute 0/0 and get NaN.  
In released branches this leads to an assertion failure later on.  
That doesn't happen in HEAD, for reasons I've not explored yet,  
but it's surely still a bug.  
  
To fix, just skip the division when the pow() result is zero, so  
that we'll (most likely) return a zero selectivity estimate.  In  
the edge cases where "sel" didn't yet underflow, perhaps this  
isn't desirable, but I'm not sure that the case is worth spending  
a lot of effort on.  The results of regex_selectivity_sub() are  
barely worth the electrons they're written on anyway :-(  
  
Per report from Alexander Lakhin.  Back-patch to all supported versions.
