1. In heap_hot_search_buffer(), the PredicateLockTuple() call is passed  
wrong offset number. heapTuple->t_self is set to the tid of the first  
tuple in the chain that's visited, not the one actually being read.  
  
2. CheckForSerializableConflictIn() uses the tuple's t_ctid field  
instead of t_self to check for exiting predicate locks on the tuple. If  
the tuple was updated, but the updater rolled back, t_ctid points to the  
aborted dead tuple.

If a tuple was frozen while its predicate locks mattered,  
read-write dependencies could be missed, resulting in failure to  
detect conflicts which could lead to anomalies in committed  
serializable transactions.  
  
This field was added to the tag when we still thought that it was  
necessary to carry locks forward to a new version of an updated  
row.  That was later proven to be unnecessary, which allowed  
simplification of the code, but elimination of xmin from the tag  
was missed at the time.

lo_open registers the currently active snapshot, and checks if the  
large object exists after that. Normally, snapshots registered by lo_open  
are unregistered at end of transaction when the lo descriptor is closed, but  
if we error out before the lo descriptor is added to the list of open  
descriptors, it is leaked. Fix by moving the snapshot registration to after  
checking if the large object exists.  
  
Reported by Pavel Stehule. Backpatch to 8.4. The snapshot registration  
system was introduced in 8.4, so prior versions are not affected (and not  
supported, anyway).

There is a rare race condition, when a transaction that inserted a tuple  
aborts while vacuum is processing the page containing the inserted tuple.  
Vacuum prunes the page first, which normally removes any dead tuples, but  
if the inserting transaction aborts right after that, the loop after  
pruning will see a dead tuple and remove it instead. That's OK, but if the  
page is on a table with no indexes, and the page becomes completely empty  
after removing the dead tuple (or tuples) on it, it will be immediately  
marked as all-visible. That's OK, but the sanity check in vacuum would  
throw a warning because it thinks that the page contains dead tuples and  
was nevertheless marked as all-visible, even though it just vacuumed away  
the dead tuples and so it doesn't actually contain any.  
  
Spotted this while reading the code. It's difficult to hit the race  
condition otherwise, but can be done by putting a breakpoint after the  
heap_page_prune() call.  
  
Backpatch all the way to 8.4, where this code first appeared.

In libpq, we set up and pass to OpenSSL callback routines to handle  
locking.  When we run out of SSL connections, we try to clean things  
up by de-registering the hooks.  Unfortunately, we had a few calls  
into the OpenSSL library after these hooks were de-registered during  
SSL cleanup which lead to deadlocking.  This moves the thread callback  
cleanup to be after all SSL-cleanup related OpenSSL library calls.  
I've been unable to reproduce the deadlock with this fix.  
  
In passing, also move the close_SSL call to be after unlocking our  
ssl_config mutex when in a failure state.  While it looks pretty  
unlikely to be an issue, it could have resulted in deadlocks if we  
ended up in this code path due to something other than SSL_new  
failing.  Thanks to Heikki for pointing this out.  
  
Back-patch to all supported versions; note that the close_SSL issue  
only goes back to 9.0, so that hunk isn't included in the 8.4 patch.  
  
Initially found and reported by Vesa-Matti J Kari; many thanks to  
both Heikki and Andres for their help running down the specific  
issue and reviewing the patch.

Once the administrator has called for an immediate shutdown or a backend  
crash has triggered a reinitialization, no mere SIGINT or SIGTERM should  
change that course.  Such derailment remains possible when the signal  
arrives before quickdie() blocks signals.  That being a narrow race  
affecting most PostgreSQL signal handlers in some way, leave it for  
another patch.  Back-patch this to all supported versions.

Don’t fail for bad GUCs in CREATE FUNCTION with check_function_bodies off.

The previous coding attempted to activate all the GUC settings specified  
in SET clauses, so that the function validator could operate in the GUC  
environment expected by the function body.  However, this is problematic  
when restoring a dump, since the SET clauses might refer to database  
objects that don't exist yet.  We already have the parameter  
check_function_bodies that's meant to prevent forward references in  
function definitions from breaking dumps, so let's change CREATE FUNCTION  
to not install the SET values if check_function_bodies is off.  
  
Authors of function validators were already advised not to make any  
"context sensitive" checks when check_function_bodies is off, if indeed  
they're checking anything at all in that mode.  But extend the  
documentation to point out the GUC issue in particular.  
  
(Note that we still check the SET clauses to some extent; the behavior  
with !check_function_bodies is now approximately equivalent to what ALTER  
DATABASE/ROLE have been doing for awhile with context-dependent GUCs.)  
  
This problem can be demonstrated in all active branches, so back-patch  
all the way.

In locate_grouping_columns(), don’t expect an exact match of Var typmods.

It's possible that inlining of SQL functions (or perhaps other changes?)  
has exposed typmod information not known at parse time.  In such cases,  
Vars generated by query_planner might have valid typmod values while the  
original grouping columns only have typmod -1.  This isn't a semantic  
problem since the behavior of grouping only depends on type not typmod,  
but it breaks locate_grouping_columns' use of tlist_member to locate the  
matching entry in query_planner's result tlist.  
  
We can fix this without an excessive amount of new code or complexity by  
relying on the fact that locate_grouping_columns only gets called when  
make_subplanTargetList has set need_tlist_eval == false, and that can only  
happen if all the grouping columns are simple Vars.  Therefore we only need  
to search the sub_tlist for a matching Var, and we can reasonably define a  
"match" as being a match of the Var identity fields  
varno/varattno/varlevelsup.  The code still Asserts that vartype matches,  
but ignores vartypmod.  
  
Per bug #8393 from Evan Martin.  The added regression test case is  
basically the same as his example.  This has been broken for a very long  
time, so back-patch to all supported branches.

With this optimization flag enabled, recent versions of gcc can generate  
incorrect code that assumes variable-length arrays (such as oidvector)  
are actually fixed-length because they're embedded in some larger struct.  
The known instance of this problem was fixed in 9.2 and up by commit  
8137f2c32322c624e0431fac1621e8e9315202f9 and followon work, which hides  
actually-variable-length catalog fields from the compiler altogether.  
And we plan to gradually convert variable-length fields to official  
"flexible array member" notation over time, which should prevent this type  
of bug from reappearing as gcc gets smarter.  We're not going to try to  
back-port those changes into older branches, though, so apply this  
band-aid instead.

The C99 and POSIX standards require strtod() to accept all these spellings  
(case-insensitively): "inf", "+inf", "-inf", "infinity", "+infinity",  
"-infinity".  However, pre-C99 systems might accept only some or none of  
these, and apparently Windows still doesn't accept "inf".  To avoid  
surprising cross-platform behavioral differences, manually check for each  
of these spellings if strtod() fails.  We were previously handling just  
"infinity" and "-infinity" that way, but since C99 is most of the world  
now, it seems likely that applications are expecting all these spellings  
to work.  
  
Per bug #8355 from Basil Peace.  It turns out this fix won't actually  
resolve his problem, because Python isn't being this careful; but that  
doesn't mean we shouldn't be.  
  

Fix old visibility bug in HeapTupleSatisfiesDirty

If a tuple is locked but not updated by a concurrent transaction,  
HeapTupleSatisfiesDirty would return that transaction's Xid in xmax,  
causing callers to wait on it, when it is not necessary (in fact, if the  
other transaction had used a multixact instead of a plain Xid to mark  
the tuple, HeapTupleSatisfiesDirty would have behave differently and  
*not* returned the Xmax).  
  
This bug was introduced in commit 3f7fbf85dc5b42, dated December 1998,  
so it's almost 15 years old now.  However, it's hard to see this  
misbehave, because before we had NOWAIT the only consequence of this is  
that transactions would wait for slightly more time than necessary; so  
it's not surprising that this hasn't been reported yet.

I've been working with Nick Phillips on an issue he ran into when  
trying to use threads with SSL client certificates.  As it turns out,  
the call in initialize_SSL() to SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file()  
will modify our SSL_context without any protection from other threads  
also calling that function or being at some other point and trying to  
read from SSL_context.  
  
To protect against this, I've written up the attached (based on an  
initial patch from Nick and much subsequent discussion) which puts  
locks around SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file() and all of the other  
users of SSL_context which weren't already protected.

We'd find the same match twice if it was of zero length and not immediately  
adjacent to the previous match.  replace_text_regexp() got similar cases  
right, so adjust this search logic to match that.  Note that even though  
the regexp_split_to_xxx() functions share this code, they did not display  
equivalent misbehavior, because the second match would be considered  
degenerate and ignored.

Refactoring as part of commit 8ceb24568054232696dddc1166a8563bc78c900a

Adjust the code to use the replacement facility, %parse-param, which  
is a much better solution anyway since it allows specification of the

In a boolean column that contains mostly nulls, ANALYZE might not find  
enough non-null values to populate the most-common-values stats,  
but it would still create a pg_statistic entry with stanullfrac set.  
The logic in booltestsel() for this situation did the wrong thing for  
"col IS NOT TRUE" and "col IS NOT FALSE" tests, forgetting that null  
values would satisfy these tests (so that the true selectivity would  
be close to one, not close to zero).  Per bug #8274.

It's possible to drop a column from an input table of a JOIN clause in a  
view, if that column is nowhere actually referenced in the view.  But it  
will still be there in the JOIN clause's joinaliasvars list.  We used to  
replace such entries with NULL Const nodes, which is handy for generation  
of RowExpr expansion of a whole-row reference to the view.  The trouble  
with that is that it can't be distinguished from the situation after  
subquery pull-up of a constant subquery output expression below the JOIN.  
Instead, replace such joinaliasvars with null pointers (empty expression  
trees), which can't be confused with pulled-up expressions.  expandRTE()  
still emits the old convention, though, for convenience of RowExpr  
generation and to reduce the risk of breaking extension code.  
  
In HEAD and 9.3, this patch also fixes a problem with some new code in  
ruleutils.c that was failing to cope with implicitly-casted joinaliasvars  
entries, as per recent report from Feike Steenbergen.  That oversight was  
because of an inadequate description of the data structure in parsenodes.h,  
which I've now corrected.  There were some pre-existing oversights of the  
same ilk elsewhere, which I believe are now all fixed.

An ancient logic error in cfindloop() could cause the regex engine to fail  
to find matches that begin later than the start of the string.  This  
function is only used when the regex pattern contains a back reference,  
and so far as we can tell the error is only reachable if the pattern is  
non-greedy (i.e. its first quantifier uses the ? modifier).  Furthermore,  
the actual match must begin after some potential match that satisfies the  
DFA but then fails the back-reference's match test.

In tuplesort.c:inittapes(), we calculate tapeSpace by first figuring  
out how many 'tapes' we can use (maxTapes) and then multiplying the  
result by the tape buffer overhead for each.  Unfortunately, when  
we are on a system with an 8-byte long, we allow work_mem to be  
larger than 2GB and that allows maxTapes to be large enough that the  
32bit arithmetic can overflow when multiplied against the buffer  
overhead.  
  
When this overflow happens, we end up adding the overflow to the  
amount of space available, causing the amount of memory allocated to  
be larger than work_mem.  
  
Note that to reach this point, you have to set work mem to at least  
24GB and be sorting a set which is at least that size.  Given that a  
user who can set work_mem to 24GB could also set it even higher, if  
they were looking to run the system out of memory, this isn't  
considered a security issue.  
  
This overflow risk was found by the Coverity scanner.  
  
Back-patch to all supported branches, as this issue has existed  
since before 8.4.

When there's a comment on an index that was created with UNIQUE or PRIMARY  
KEY constraint syntax, we need to label the comment as depending on the  
constraint not the index, since only the constraint object actually appears  
in the dump.  This incorrect dependency can lead to parallel pg_restore  
trying to restore the comment before the index has been created, per bug  
#8257 from Lloyd Albin.  
  
This patch fixes pg_dump to produce the right dependency in dumps made  
in the future.  Usually we also try to hack pg_restore to work around  
bogus dependencies, so that existing (wrong) dumps can still be restored in  
parallel mode; but that doesn't seem practical here since there's no easy  
way to relate the constraint dump entry to the comment after the fact.

On Unix-ish platforms, EWOULDBLOCK may be the same as EAGAIN, which is  
*not* a success return, at least not on Linux.  We need to treat it as a  
failure to avoid giving a misleading error message.  Per the Single Unix  
Spec, only EINPROGRESS and EINTR returns indicate that the connection  
attempt is in progress.  
  
On Windows, on the other hand, EWOULDBLOCK (WSAEWOULDBLOCK) is the expected  
case.  We must accept EINPROGRESS as well because Cygwin will return that,  
and it doesn't seem worth distinguishing Cygwin from native Windows here.  
It's not very clear whether EINTR can occur on Windows, but let's leave  
that part of the logic alone in the absence of concrete trouble reports.  
  
Also, remove the test for errno == 0, effectively reverting commit  
da9501bddb42222dc33c031b1db6ce2133bcee7b, which AFAICS was just a thinko;  
or at best it might have been a workaround for a platform-specific bug,  
which we can hope is gone now thirteen years later.  In any case, since  
libpq makes no effort to reset errno to zero before calling connect(),  
it seems unlikely that that test has ever reliably done anything useful.

Adjust the wording in the first para of "Sequence Manipulation Functions"  
so that neither of the link phrases in it break across line boundaries,  
in either A4- or US-page-size PDF output.  This fixes a reported build  
failure for the 9.3beta2 A4 PDF docs, and future-proofs this particular  
para against causing similar problems in future.  (Perhaps somebody will  
fix this issue in the SGML/TeX documentation tool chain someday, but I'm  
not holding my breath.)

In binary upgrade mode, we need to recreate and then drop dropped  
columns so that all the columns get the right attribute number. This is  
true for foreign tables as well as for native tables. For foreign  
tables we have been getting the first part right but not the second,  
leading to bogus columns in the upgraded database. Fix this all the way  
back to 9.1, where foreign tables were introduced.

In replication, when we shutdown the master, walsender tries to send  
all the outstanding WAL records to the standby, and then to exit. This  
basically means that all the WAL records are fully synced between  
two servers after the clean shutdown of the master. So, after  
promoting the standby to new master, we can restart the stopped  
master as new standby without the need for a fresh backup from  
new master.  
  
But there was one problem so far: though walsender tries to send all  
the outstanding WAL records, it doesn't wait for them to be replicated  
to the standby. Then, before receiving all the WAL records,  
walreceiver can detect the closure of connection and exit. We cannot  
guarantee that there is no missing WAL in the standby after clean  
shutdown of the master. In this case, backup from new master is  
required when restarting the stopped master as new standby.  
  
This patch fixes this problem. It just changes walsender so that it  
waits for all the outstanding WAL records to be replicated to the  
standby before closing the replication connection.  
  
Per discussion, this is a fix that needs to get backpatched rather than  
new feature. So, back-patch to 9.1 where enough infrastructure for  
this exists.

In most scenarios a portal without a ResourceOwner is dead and not subject  
to any further execution, but a portal for a cursor WITH HOLD remains in  
existence with no ResourceOwner after the creating transaction is over.  
In this situation, if we attempt to "execute" the portal directly to fetch  
data from it, we were setting CurrentResourceOwner to NULL, leading to a  
segfault if the datatype output code did anything that required a resource  
owner (such as trying to fetch system catalog entries that weren't already  
cached).  The case appears to be impossible to provoke with stock libpq,  
but psqlODBC at least is able to cause it when working with held cursors.  
  
Simplest fix is to just skip the assignment to CurrentResourceOwner, so  
that any resources used by the data output operations will be managed by  
the transaction-level resource owner instead.  For consistency I changed  
all the places that install a portal's resowner as current, even though  
some of them are probably not reachable with a held cursor's portal.

We need to increment the refcount on the composite type's cached tuple  
descriptor while we do lookups of its column types.  Otherwise a cache  
flush could occur and release the tuple descriptor before we're done with  
it.  This fails reliably with -DCLOBBER_CACHE_ALWAYS, but the odds of a  
failure in a production build seem rather low (since the pfree'd descriptor  
typically wouldn't get scribbled on immediately).  That may explain the  
lack of any previous reports.  Buildfarm issue noted by Christian Ullrich.

When the existing code here was written, it made sense to special-case  
RowExprs because that was the only way that we could handle row comparisons  
at all.  Now that we have record_eq() and arrays of composites, the generic  
logic for "scalar" types will in fact work on RowExprs too, so there's no  
reason to throw error for combinations of RowExprs and other ways of  
forming composite values, nor to ignore the possibility of using a  
ScalarArrayOpExpr.  But keep using the old logic when comparing two  
RowExprs, for consistency with the main transformAExprOp() logic.  (This  
allows some cases with not-quite-identical rowtypes to succeed, so we might  
get push-back if we removed it.)  Per bug #8198 from Rafal Rzepecki.

AllocateFile(), AllocateDir(), and some sister routines share a small array  
for remembering requests, so that the files can be closed on transaction  
failure.  Previously that array had a fixed size, MAX_ALLOCATED_DESCS (32).  
While historically that had seemed sufficient, Steve Toutant pointed out  
that this meant you couldn't scan more than 32 file_fdw foreign tables in  
one query, because file_fdw depends on the COPY code which uses  
AllocateFile().  There are probably other cases, or will be in the future,  
where this nonconfigurable limit impedes users.  
  
We can't completely remove any such limit, at least not without a lot of  
work, since each such request requires a kernel file descriptor and most  
platforms limit the number we can have.  (In principle we could  
"virtualize" these descriptors, as fd.c already does for the main VFD pool,  
but not without an additional layer of overhead and a lot of notational  
impact on the calling code.)  But we can at least let the array size be  
configurable.  Hence, change the code to allow up to max_safe_fds/2  
allocated file requests.  On modern platforms this should allow several  
hundred concurrent file_fdw scans, or more if one increases the value of  
max_files_per_process.  To go much further than that, we'd need to do some  
more work on the data structure, since the current code for closing  
requests has potentially O(N^2) runtime; but it should still be all right  
for request counts in this range.  
  
Back-patch to 9.1 where contrib/file_fdw was introduced.

Long-standing code has called tolower() on identifier character bytes  
with the high bit set. This is clearly an error and produces junk output  
when the encoding is multi-byte. This patch therefore restricts this

the encoding is single-byte.

The planner is aware that it mustn't push down upper-level quals into  
subqueries if the quals reference subquery output columns that contain  
set-returning functions or volatile functions, or are non-DISTINCT outputs  
of a DISTINCT ON subquery.  However, it missed making this check when  
there were one or more levels of UNION or INTERSECT above the dangerous  
expression.  This could lead to "set-valued function called in context that  
cannot accept a set" errors, as seen in bug #8213 from Eric Soroos, or to  
silently wrong answers in the other cases.  
  
To fix, refactor the checks so that we make the column-is-unsafe checks  
during subquery_is_pushdown_safe(), which already has to recursively  
inspect all arms of a set-operation tree.  This makes  
qual_is_pushdown_safe() considerably simpler, at the cost that we will  
spend some cycles checking output columns that possibly aren't referenced  
in any upper qual.  But the cases where this code gets executed at all  
are already nontrivial queries, so it's unlikely anybody will notice any  
slowdown of planning.  
  
This has been broken since commit 05f916e6add9726bf4ee046e4060c1b03c9961f2,  
which makes the bug over ten years old.  A bit surprising nobody noticed it  
before now.

In commit 2c92edad48796119c83d7dbe6c33425d1924626d, I broke "EXPLAIN  
(ANALYZE)" syntax, because I mistakenly thought that ANALYZE/ANALYSE were  
only partially reserved and thus would be included in NonReservedWord;  
but actually they're fully reserved so they still need to be called out  
here.  
  
A nicer solution would be to demote these words to type_func_name_keyword  
status (they can't be less than that because of "VACUUM [ANALYZE] ColId").  
While that works fine so far as the core grammar is concerned, it breaks  
ECPG's grammar for reasons I don't have time to isolate at the moment.  
So do this for the time being.

The new message (and SQLSTATE) matches the corresponding error cases in  
namespace.c.  
  
This was thought to be a "can't happen" case when extension.c was written,  
so we didn't think hard about how to report it.  But it definitely can  
happen in 9.2 and later, since we no longer require search_path to contain  
any valid schema names.  It's probably also possible in 9.1 if search_path  
came from a noninteractive source.  So, back-patch to all releases  
containing this code.

The array allocated by GetRunningTransactionLocks() needs to be pfree'd  
when we're done with it.  Otherwise we leak some memory during each  
checkpoint, if wal_level = hot_standby.  This manifests as memory bloat  
in the checkpointer process, or in bgwriter in versions before we made  
the checkpointer separate.  
  
Reported and fixed by Naoya Anzai.  Back-patch to 9.0 where the issue  
was introduced.  
  
In passing, improve comments for GetRunningTransactionLocks(), and add  
an Assert that we didn't overrun the palloc'd array.

"eval q{foo}" used to complain that the error was on line 2 of the eval'd  
string, because eval internally tacked on "\n;" so that the end of the  
erroneous command was indeed on line 2.  But as of Perl 5.18 it more  
sanely says that the error is on line 1.  To avoid Perl-version-dependent  
regression test results, use "eval q{foo;}" instead in the two places  
where this matters.  Per buildfarm.  
  
Since people might try to use newer Perl versions with older PG releases,  
back-patch as far as 9.0 where these test cases were added.  
  

Allow type_func_name_keywords in some places where they weren’t before.

This change makes type_func_name_keywords less reserved than they were  
before, by allowing them for role names, language names, EXPLAIN and COPY  
options, and SET values for GUCs; which are all places where few if any  
actual keywords could appear instead, so no new ambiguities are introduced.  
  
The main driver for this change is to allow "COPY ... (FORMAT BINARY)"  
to work without quoting the word "binary".  That is an inconsistency that  
has been complained of repeatedly over the years (at least by Pavel Golub,  
Kurt Lidl, and Simon Riggs); but we hadn't thought of any non-ugly solution  
until now.  
  
Back-patch to 9.0 where the COPY (FORMAT BINARY) syntax was introduced.

The documentation for ALTER TYPE .. RENAME claimed to support a  
RESTRICT/CASCADE option at the 'type' level, which wasn't implemented  
and doesn't make a whole lot of sense to begin with.  What is supported,  
and previously undocumented, is  
  
ALTER TYPE .. RENAME ATTRIBUTE .. RESTRICT/CASCADE.  
  
I've updated the documentation and back-patched this to 9.1 where it was  
first introduced.

PathNameOpenFile failed to ensure that the correct value of errno was  
returned to its caller after a failure (because it incorrectly supposed  
that free() can never change errno).  In some cases this would result  
in a user-visible failure because an expected ENOENT errno was replaced  
with something else.  Bogus EINVAL failures have been observed on OS X,  
for example.  
  
There were also a couple of places that could mangle an important value  
of errno if FDDEBUG was defined.  While the usefulness of that debug  
support is highly debatable, we might as well make it safe to use,  
so add errno save/restore logic to the DO_DB macro.

Fix handling of OID wraparound while in standalone mode.

If OID wraparound should occur while in standalone mode (unlikely but  
possible), we want to advance the counter to FirstNormalObjectId not  
FirstBootstrapObjectId.  Otherwise, user objects might be created with OIDs  
in the system-reserved range.  That isn't immediately harmful but it poses  
a risk of conflicts during future pg_upgrade operations.  
  
Noted by Andres Freund.  Back-patch to all supported branches, since all of  
them are supported sources for pg_upgrade operations.

This case doesn't normally happen, because the planner usually clamps  
all row estimates to at least one row; but I found that it can arise  
when dealing with relations excluded by constraints.  Without a defense,  
estimate_num_groups() can return zero, which leads to divisions by zero  
inside the planner as well as assertion failures in the executor.  
  
An alternative fix would be to change set_dummy_rel_pathlist() to make  
the size estimate for a dummy relation 1 row instead of 0, but that seemed  
pretty ugly; and probably someday we'll want to drop the convention that  
the minimum rowcount estimate is 1 row.  
  
Back-patch to 8.4, as the problem can be demonstrated that far back.

This helps guard against changes in the set of reserved keywords from  
one version to another.  In theory it should only be an issue if we  
de-reserve a keyword in a newer release, since that can create the type  
of problem shown in bug #8128.  
  
Back-patch to 9.1 where the --quote-all-identifiers option was added.

This is a follow-up to the earlier fix, which changed the recycling logic  
to recycle WAL segments under the current recovery target timeline. That  
turns out to be a bad idea, because installing a recycled segment with  
a TLI higher than what we're recovering at the moment means that the recovery  
logic will find the recycled WAL segment and try to replay it. It will fail,  
but but the mere presence of such a WAL segment will mask any other, real,  
file with the same log/seg, but smaller TLI.  
  
Per report from Mitsumasa Kondo. Apply to 9.1 and 9.2, like the previous  
fix. Master was already doing this differently; this patch makes 9.1 and  
9.2 to do the same thing as master.

Patch b19e4250b45e91c9cbdd18d35ea6391ab5961c8d attempted to  
preserve existing behavior regarding statistics generation in the  
case that a truncation attempt was canceled due to lock conflicts.  
It failed to do this accurately in two regards: (1) autovacuum had  
previously generated statistics if the truncate attempt failed to  
initially get the lock rather than having started the attempt, and  
(2) the VACUUM ANALYZE command had always generated statistics.  
  
Both of these changes were unintended, and are reverted by this  
patch.  On review, there seems to be consensus that the previous  
failure to generate statistics when the truncate was terminated  
was more an unfortunate consequence of how that effort was  
previously terminated than a feature we want to keep; so this  
patch generates statistics even when an autovacuum truncation  
attempt terminates early.  Another unintended change which is kept  
on the basis that it is an improvement is that when a VACUUM  
command is truncating, it will the new heuristic for avoiding  
blocking other processes, rather than keeping an  
AccessExclusiveLock on the table for however long the truncation  
takes.

When creating or manipulating a cached plan for a transaction control  
command (particularly ROLLBACK), we must not perform any catalog accesses,  
since we might be in an aborted transaction.  However, plancache.c busily  
saved or examined the search_path for every cached plan.  If we were  
unlucky enough to do this at a moment where the path's expansion into  
schema OIDs wasn't already cached, we'd do some catalog accesses; and with  
some more bad luck such as an ill-timed signal arrival, that could lead to  
crashes or Assert failures, as exhibited in bug #8095 from Nachiket Vaidya.  
Fortunately, there's no real need to consider the search path for such  
commands, so we can just skip the relevant steps when the subject statement  
is a TransactionStmt.  This is somewhat related to bug #5269, though the  
failure happens during initial cached-plan creation rather than  
revalidation.  
  
This bug has been there since the plan cache was invented, so back-patch  
to all supported branches.

The old formula didn't take into account that each WAL sender process needs  
a spinlock. We had also already exceeded the fixed number of spinlocks  
reserved for misc purposes (10). Bump that to 30.  
  
Backpatch to 9.0, where WAL senders were introduced. If I counted correctly,

Notice and complain about PQcancel() failures.  Also, don't dump core if  
an error PGresult doesn't contain severity and message subfields, as it  
might not if it was generated by libpq itself.  (We have a longstanding  
TODO item to improve that, but in the meantime isolationtester had better  
cope.)  
  
I tripped across the latter item while investigating a trouble report on  
buildfarm member spoonbill.  As for the former, there's no evidence that  
PQcancel failure is actually involved in spoonbill's problem, but it still  
seems like a bad idea to ignore an error return code.
