Despite the argumentation I wrote in commit 7a2fe85b0, it's unsafe to do  
this, because in corner cases it's possible for HeapTupleSatisfiesSelf  
to try to set hint bits on the target tuple; and at least since 8.2 we  
have required the buffer content lock to be held while setting hint bits.  
  
The added regression test exercises one such corner case.  Unpatched, it  
causes an assertion failure in assert-enabled builds, or otherwise would  
cause a hint bit change in a buffer we don't hold lock on, which given  
the right race condition could result in checksum failures or other data  
consistency problems.  The odds of a problem in the field are probably  
pretty small, but nonetheless back-patch to all supported branches.

With track_io_timing = on, EXPLAIN (ANALYZE, BUFFERS) will emit fields  
named like "I/O Read Time".  The slash makes that invalid as an XML  
element name, so that adding FORMAT XML would produce invalid XML.  
  
We already have code in there to translate spaces to dashes, so let's  
generalize that to convert anything that isn't a valid XML name character,  
viz letters, digits, hyphens, underscores, and periods.  We could just  
reject slashes, which would run a bit faster.  But the fact that this went  
unnoticed for so long doesn't give me a warm feeling that we'd notice the  
next creative violation, so let's make it a permanent fix.  
  
Reported by Markus Winand, though this isn't his initial patch proposal.  
  
Back-patch to 9.2 where track_io_timing was added.  The problem is only  
latent in 9.1, so I don't feel a need to fix it there.

DST law changes in Turkey.  Historical corrections for America/Los_Angeles,  
Europe/Kirov, Europe/Moscow, Europe/Samara, and Europe/Ulyanovsk.  
Rename Asia/Rangoon to Asia/Yangon, with a backward compatibility link.  
  
The IANA crew continue their campaign to replace invented time zone  
abbrevations with numeric GMT offsets.  This update changes numerous zones  
in Antarctica and the former Soviet Union, for instance Antarctica/Casey  
now reports "+08" not "AWST" in the pg_timezone_names view.  I kept these  
abbreviations in the tznames/ data files, however, so that we will still  
accept them for input.  (We may want to start trimming those files someday,  
but today is not that day.)  
  
An exception is that since IANA no longer claims that "AMT" is in use  
in Armenia for GMT+4, I replaced it in the Default file with GMT-4,  
corresponding to Amazon Time which is in use in South America.  It may be  
that that meaning is also invented and IANA will drop it in a future  
update; but for now, it seems silly to give pride of place to a meaning  
not traceable to IANA over one that is.

When a relation is truncated, it is important that the FSM is truncated as  
well. Otherwise, after recovery, the FSM can return a page that has been  
truncated away, leading to errors like:  
  
ERROR:  could not read block 28991 in file "base/16390/572026": read only 0  
of 8192 bytes  
  
We were using MarkBufferDirtyHint() to dirty the buffer holding the last  
remaining page of the FSM, but during recovery, that might in fact not  
dirty the page, and the FSM update might be lost.  
  
To fix, use the stronger MarkBufferDirty() function. MarkBufferDirty()  
requires us to do WAL-logging ourselves, to protect from a torn page, if  
checksumming is enabled.  
  
Also fix an oversight in visibilitymap_truncate: it also needs to WAL-log  
when checksumming is enabled.

CommandId is declared as uint32, and values up to 4G are indeed legal.  
cidout() handles them properly by treating the value as unsigned int.  
But cidin() was just using atoi(), which has platform-dependent behavior  
for values outside the range of signed int, as reported by Bart Lengkeek  
in bug #14379.  Use strtoul() instead, as xidin() does.  
  
In passing, make some purely cosmetic changes to make xidin/xidout  
look more like cidin/cidout; the former didn't have a monopoly on  
best practice IMO.  
  
Neither xidin nor cidin make any attempt to throw error for invalid input.  
I didn't change that here, and am not sure it's worth worrying about  
since neither is really a user-facing type.  The point is just to ensure  
that indubitably-valid inputs work as expected.  
  
It's been like this for a long time, so back-patch to all supported  
branches.

bitshiftright() and bitshiftleft() would recursively call each other  
infinitely if the user passed INT_MIN for the shift amount, due to integer  
overflow in negating the shift amount.  To fix, clamp to -VARBITMAXLEN.  
That doesn't change the results since any shift distance larger than the  
input bit string's length produces an all-zeroes result.  
  
Also fix some places that seemed inadequately paranoid about input typmods  
exceeding VARBITMAXLEN.  While a typmod accepted by anybit_typmodin() will  
certainly be much less than that, at least some of these spots are  
reachable with user-chosen integer values.

It's not good for an inherited child constraint to be marked connoinherit;  
that would result in the constraint not propagating to grandchild tables,  
if any are created later.  The code mostly prevented this from happening  
but there was one case that was missed.  
  
This is somewhat related to commit e55a946a8, which also tightened checks  
on constraint merging.  Hence, back-patch to 9.2 like that one.  This isn't  
so much because there's a concrete feature-related reason to stop there,  
as to avoid having more distinct behaviors than we have to in this area.

Try to find out the actual hugepage size when making a MAP_HUGETLB request.

Even if Linux's mmap() is okay with a partial-hugepage request, munmap()  
is not, as reported by Chris Richards.  Therefore it behooves us to try  
a bit harder to find out the actual hugepage size, instead of assuming  
that we can skate by with a guess.  
  
For the moment, just look into /proc/meminfo to find out the default  
hugepage size, and use that.  Later, on kernels that support requests  
for nondefault sizes, we might try to consider other alternatives.  
But that smells more like a new feature than a bug fix, especially if  
we want to provide any way for the DBA to control it, so leave it for  
another day.  
  
I set this up to allow easy addition of platform-specific code for  
non-Linux platforms, if needed; but right now there are no reports  
suggesting that we need to work harder on other platforms.  
  
Back-patch to 9.4 where hugepage support was introduced.

Fix detaching of the mmap'd segment to have its own on_shmem_exit callback,  
rather than piggybacking on the one for detaching from the SysV segment.  
That was confusing, and given the distance between the two attach calls,  
it was trouble waiting to happen.  
  
Make the detaching calls idempotent by clearing AnonymousShmem to show  
we've already unmapped.  I spent quite a bit of time yesterday trying  
to find a path that would allow the munmap()'s to be done twice, and  
while I did not succeed, it seems silly that there's even a question.  
  
Make the #ifdef logic less confusing by separating "do we want to use  
anonymous shmem" from EXEC_BACKEND.  Even though there's no current  
scenario where those conditions are different, it is not helpful for  
different places in the same file to be testing EXEC_BACKEND for what  
are fundamentally different reasons.  
  
Don't do on_exit_reset() in StartBackgroundWorker().  At best that's  
useless (InitPostmasterChild would have done it already) and at worst  
it could zap some callback that's unrelated to shared memory.

This turns out not to be as harmless as I thought: MSVC will complain  
if it sees an "extern" declaration without PGDLLEXPORT and then one with.  
(Seems fairly silly, given that this can be changed after the fact by the  
linker, but there you have it.)  Therefore, contrib modules that have  
extern's for V1 functions in header files are falling over in the  
buildfarm, since none of those externs are marked PGDLLEXPORT.  
  
We might or might not conclude that we're willing to plaster those  
declarations with PGDLLEXPORT in HEAD, but in any case there's no way we're  
going to ship this change in the back branches.  Third-party authors would  
not thank us for breaking their code in a minor release.  Hence, revert  
the addition of PGDLLEXPORT (but let's keep the extra info in the comment).  
If we do the other changes we can revert this commit in HEAD.

This isn't really necessary for our own code, because we use a .DEF file  
in MSVC builds (see gendef.pl), or --export-all-symbols in MinGW and  
Cygwin builds, to ensure that all global symbols in loadable modules  
will be exported on Windows.  However, third-party authors might use  
different build processes that need this marker, and it's harmless  
enough for our own builds.  
  
To some extent, this is an oversight in commit e7128e8db, so back-patch  
to 9.4 where that was added.

Fix two bugs in merging of inherited CHECK constraints.

commit   : 12230c47855f67d1288c058d8d0a5f8e1febe366

Historically, we've allowed users to add a CHECK constraint to a child  
table and then add an identical CHECK constraint to the parent.  This  
results in "merging" the two constraints so that the pre-existing  
child constraint ends up with both conislocal = true and coninhcount > 0.  
However, if you tried to do it in the other order, you got a duplicate  
constraint error.  This is problematic for pg_dump, which needs to issue  
separated ADD CONSTRAINT commands in some cases, but has no good way to  
ensure that the constraints will be added in the required order.  
And it's more than a bit arbitrary, too.  The goal of complaining about  
duplicated ADD CONSTRAINT commands can be served if we reject the case of  
adding a constraint when the existing one already has conislocal = true;  
but if it has conislocal = false, let's just make the ADD CONSTRAINT set  
conislocal = true.  In this way, either order of adding the constraints  
has the same end result.  
  
Another problem was that the code allowed creation of a parent constraint  
marked convalidated that is merged with a child constraint that is  
!convalidated.  In this case, an inheritance scan of the parent table could  
emit some rows violating the constraint condition, which would be an  
unexpected result given the marking of the parent constraint as validated.  
Hence, forbid merging of constraints in this case.  (Note: valid child and  
not-valid parent seems fine, so continue to allow that.)  
  
Per report from Benedikt Grundmann.  Back-patch to 9.2 where we introduced  
possibly-not-valid check constraints.  The second bug obviously doesn't  
apply before that, and I think the first doesn't either, because pg_dump  
only gets into this situation when dealing with not-valid constraints.

Recent Perl and/or new Linux distributions are starting to remove "." from  
the @INC list by default. That breaks pg_rewind and ssl test suites, which  
use helper perl modules that reside in the same directory. To fix, add the  
current source directory explicitly to prove's include dir.  
  
The vcregress.pl script probably also needs something like this, but I  
wasn't able to remove '.' from @INC on Windows to test this, and don't want  
to try doing that blindly.

Leaving the error in the error queue used to be harmless, because the  
X509_STORE_load_locations() call used to be the last step in  
initialize_SSL(), and we would clear the queue before the next  
SSL_connect() call. But previous commit moved things around. The symptom  
was that if a CRL file was not found, and one of the subsequent  
initialization steps, like loading the client certificate or private key,  
failed, we would incorrectly print the "no such file" error message from  
the earlier X509_STORE_load_locations() call as the reason.  
  
Backpatch to all supported versions, like the previous patch.

There were several issues with the old coding:  
  
1. There was a race condition, if two threads opened a connection at the  
   same time. We used a mutex around SSL_CTX_* calls, but that was not  
   enough, e.g. if one thread SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations() with one  
   path, and another thread set it with a different path, before the first  
   thread got to establish the connection.  
  
2. Opening two different connections, with different sslrootcert settings,  
   seemed to fail outright with "SSL error: block type is not 01". Not sure  
   why.  
  
3. We created the SSL object, before calling SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations  
   and SSL_CTX_use_certificate_chain_file on the SSL context. That was  
   wrong, because the options set on the SSL context are propagated to the  
   SSL object, when the SSL object is created. If they are set after the  
   SSL object has already been created, they won't take effect until the  
   next connection. (This is bug #14329)  
  
At least some of these could've been fixed while still using a shared  
context, but it would've been more complicated and error-prone. To keep  
things simple, let's just use a separate SSL context for each connection,  
and accept the overhead.  
  
Backpatch to all supported versions.

Before initializing iteration over a subtransaction's changes, the last  
few changes were not spilled to disk. That's correct if the transaction  
didn't spill to disk, but otherwise... This bug can lead to missed or  
misorderd subtransaction contents when they were spilled to disk.  
  
Move spilling of the remaining in-memory changes to  
ReorderBufferIterTXNInit(), where it can easily be applied to the top  
transaction and, if present, subtransactions.  
  
Since this code had too many bugs already, noticeably increase test  
coverage.

In standard Unix builds, postmaster child processes do ClosePostmasterPorts  
immediately after InitPostmasterChild, that is almost immediately after  
being spawned.  This is important because we don't want children holding  
open the postmaster's end of the postmaster death watch pipe.  
  
However, in EXEC_BACKEND builds, SubPostmasterMain was postponing this  
responsibility significantly, in order to make it slightly more convenient  
to pass the right flag value to ClosePostmasterPorts.  This is bad,  
particularly seeing that process_shared_preload_libraries() might invoke  
nearly-arbitrary code.  Rearrange so that we do it as soon as we've  
fetched the socket FDs via read_backend_variables().  
  
Also move the comment explaining about randomize_va_space to before the  
call of PGSharedMemoryReAttach, which is where it's relevant.  The old  
placement was appropriate when the reattach happened inside  
CreateSharedMemoryAndSemaphores, but that was a long time ago.  
  
Back-patch to 9.3; the patch doesn't apply cleanly before that, and  
it doesn't seem worth a lot of effort given that we've had no actual  
field complaints traceable to this.

Faulty AND/OR nesting in the WHERE clause of getFuncs' SQL query led to  
dumping range constructor functions if they are part of an extension  
and we're in binary-upgrade mode.  Actually, we don't want to dump them  
separately even then, since CREATE TYPE AS RANGE will create the range's  
constructor functions regardless.  Per report from Andrew Dunstan.

We must test GetLastError() even when CreateFileMapping() returns a  
non-null handle.  If that value were left over from some previous system  
call, we might be fooled into thinking the segment already existed.  
Experimentation on Windows 7 suggests that CreateFileMapping() clears  
the error code on success, but it is not documented to do so, so let's  
not rely on that happening in all Windows releases.

Commits 470d886c3 et al intended to fix the problem that the postmaster  
selected the same "random" DSM control segment ID on every start.  But  
using PostmasterRandom() for that destroys the intended property that the  
delay between random_start_time and random_stop_time will be unpredictable.  
(Said delay is probably already more predictable than we could wish, but  
that doesn't mean that reducing it by a couple orders of magnitude is OK.)  
Revert the previous patch and add a comment warning against misuse of  
PostmasterRandom.  Fix the original problem by calling srandom() early in  
PostmasterMain, using a low-security seed that will later be overwritten  
by PostmasterRandom.

ExecInitCteScan supposed that it didn't have to do anything to the extra  
tuplestore read pointer it gets from tuplestore_alloc_read_pointer.  
However, it needs this read pointer to be positioned at the start of the  
tuplestore, while tuplestore_alloc_read_pointer is actually defined as  
cloning the current position of read pointer 0.  In normal situations  
that accidentally works because we initialize the whole plan tree at once,  
before anything gets read.  But it fails in an EvalPlanQual recheck, as  
illustrated in bug #14328 from Dima Pavlov.  To fix, just forcibly rewind  
the pointer after tuplestore_alloc_read_pointer.  The cost of doing so is  
negligible unless the tuplestore is already in TSS_READFILE state, which  
wouldn't happen in normal cases.  We could consider altering tuplestore's  
API to make that case cheaper, but that would make for a more invasive  
back-patch and it doesn't seem worth it.  
  
This has been broken probably for as long as we've had CTEs, so back-patch  
to all supported branches.

If the test duration was given in # of transactions (-t or no option),  
rather as a duration (-T), the latency average was always printed as 0.  
It has been broken ever since the display of latency average was added,

Otherwise, attempts to run multiple postmasters running on the same  
machine may fail, because Windows sometimes returns ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED  
rather than ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS when there is an existing segment.  
  
Hitting this bug is much more likely because of another defect not  
fixed by this patch, namely that dsm_postmaster_startup() uses  
random() which returns the same value every time.  But that's not  
a reason not to fix this.

Some experimentation with an older version of gcc showed that it is able  
to determine whether "if (elevel_ >= ERROR)" is compile-time constant  
if elevel_ is declared "const", but otherwise not so much.  We had  
accounted for that in ereport() but were too miserly with braces to  
make it so in elog().  I don't know how many currently-interesting  
compilers have the same quirk, but in case it will save some code  
space, let's make sure that elog() is on the same footing as ereport()  
for this purpose.

Commit dd1a3bccc replaced a test on whether a subroutine returned a  
null pointer with a test on whether &pointer->backendStatus was null.  
This accidentally failed to fail, at least on common compilers, because  
backendStatus is the first field in the struct; but it was surely trouble  
waiting to happen.  Commit f91feba87 then messed things up further,  
changing the logic to  
  
	local_beentry = pgstat_fetch_stat_local_beentry(curr_backend);  
	if (!local_beentry)  
		continue;  
	beentry = &local_beentry->backendStatus;  
	if (!beentry)  
	{  
  
where the second "if" is now dead code, so that the intended behavior of  
printing a row with "<backend information not available>" cannot occur.  
  
I suspect this is all moot because pgstat_fetch_stat_local_beentry  
will never actually return null in this function's usage, but it's still  
very poor coding.  Repair back to 9.4 where the original problem was  
introduced.

When heap_lock_tuple decides to follow the update chain, it tried to  
also lock any version of the tuple that was created by an update that  
was subsequently rolled back.  This is pointless, since for all intents  
and purposes that tuple exists no more; and moreover it causes  
misbehavior, as reported independently by Marko Tiikkaja and Marti  
Raudsepp: some SELECT FOR UPDATE/SHARE queries may fail to return  
the tuples, and assertion-enabled builds crash.  
  
Fix by having heap_lock_updated_tuple test the xmin and return success  
immediately if the tuple was created by an aborted transaction.  
  
The condition where tuples become invisible occurs when an updated tuple  
chain is followed by heap_lock_updated_tuple, which reports the problem  
as HeapTupleSelfUpdated to its caller heap_lock_tuple, which in turn  
propagates that code outwards possibly leading the calling code  
(ExecLockRows) to believe that the tuple exists no longer.  
  
Backpatch to 9.3.  Only on 9.5 and newer this leads to a visible  
failure, because of commit 27846f02c176; before that, heap_lock_tuple  
skips the whole dance when the tuple is already locked by the same  
transaction, because of the ancient HeapTupleSatisfiesUpdate behavior.  
Still, the buggy condition may also exist in more convoluted scenarios  
involving concurrent transactions, so it seems safer to fix the bug in  
the old branches too.

mdtruncate() forgot to FileClose() a segment's mdfd_vfd, when deleting  
it. That lead to a fd.c handle to a truncated file being kept open until  
backend exit.  
  
The issue appears to have been introduced way back in 1a5c450f3024ac5,  
before that the handle was closed inside FileUnlink().  
  
The impact of this bug is limited - only VACUUM and ON COMMIT TRUNCATE  
for temporary tables, truncate files in place (i.e. TRUNCATE itself is  
not affected), and the relation has to be bigger than 1GB. The  
consequences of a leaked fd.c handle aren't severe either.

computeLeafRecompressWALData() tried to produce a uint16 WAL log field by  
memcpy'ing the first two bytes of an int-sized variable.  That accidentally  
works on little-endian hardware, but not at all on big-endian.  Replay then  
thinks it's looking at an ADDITEMS action with zero entries, and reads the  
first two bytes of the first TID therein as the next segno/action,  
typically leading to "unexpected GIN leaf action" errors during replay.  
Even if replay failed to crash, the resulting GIN index page would surely  
be incorrect.  To fix, just declare the variable as uint16 instead.  
  
Per bug #14295 from Spencer Thomason (much thanks to Spencer for turning  
his problem into a self-contained test case).  This likely also explains

Don’t require dynamic timezone abbreviations to match underlying time zone.

Previously, we threw an error if a dynamic timezone abbreviation did not  
match any abbreviation recorded in the referenced IANA time zone entry.  
That seemed like a good consistency check at the time, but it turns out  
that a number of the abbreviations in the IANA database are things that  
Olson and crew made up out of whole cloth.  Their current policy is to  
remove such names in favor of using simple numeric offsets.  Perhaps  
unsurprisingly, a lot of these made-up abbreviations have varied in meaning  
over time, which meant that our commit b2cbced9e and later changes made  
them into dynamic abbreviations.  So with newer IANA database versions  
that don't mention these abbreviations at all, we fail, as reported in bug  
#14307 from Neil Anderson.  It's worse than just a few unused-in-the-wild  
abbreviations not working, because the pg_timezone_abbrevs view stops  
working altogether (since its underlying function tries to compute the  
whole view result in one call).  
  
We considered deleting these abbreviations from our abbreviations list, but  
the problem with that is that we can't stay ahead of possible future IANA  
changes.  Instead, let's leave the abbreviations list alone, and treat any  
"orphaned" dynamic abbreviation as just meaning the referenced time zone.  
It will behave a bit differently than it used to, in that you can't any  
longer override the zone's standard vs. daylight rule by using the "wrong"  
abbreviation of a pair, but that's better than failing entirely.  (Also,  
this solution can be interpreted as adding a small new feature, which is  
that any abbreviation a user wants can be defined as referencing a time  
zone name.)  
  
Back-patch to all supported branches, since this problem affects all  
of them when using tzdata 2016f or newer.

The 9.4 version of log_heap_update() stores the full length of the  
old_key_tuple in xlhdr.t_len, rather than the length less  
offsetof(HeapTupleHeaderData, t_bits) as is customary elsewhere.  
DecodeUpdate() was expecting the usual definition, which caused it  
to copy 23 bytes too much out of the WAL-file buffer.  Most of the  
time that's harmless, although Valgrind on buildfarm member skink  
has been complaining about it, and there was one actual SIGSEGV  
on curculio that might have been caused by this.  The reconstructed  
key tuple would also have an over-length t_len, though offhand  
I do not see how that could cause any visible problem.  
  
The problem seems to have disappeared in the 9.5 WAL format changes  
(commit 2c03216d8), so we only need to fix 9.4.

This can't really work because standby_mode expects there to be more  
WAL arriving, which there will not ever be because there's no WAL  
receiver process to fetch it.  Moreover, if standby_mode is on then  
hot standby might also be turned on, causing even more strangeness  
because that expects read-only sessions to be executing in parallel.  
Bernd Helmle reported a case where btree_xlog_delete_get_latestRemovedXid  
got confused, but rather than band-aiding individual problems it seems  
best to prevent getting anywhere near this state in the first place.

Previously pg_xlogdump failed to dump the contents of the WAL file  
if the file starts with the continuation WAL record which spans  
more than one pages. Since pg_xlogdump assumed that the continuation  
record always fits on a page, it could not find the valid WAL record to  
start reading from in that case.  
  
This patch changes pg_xlogdump so that it can handle a continuation  
WAL record which crosses a page boundary and find the valid record  
to start reading from.

Commit f0c7b789a added a test case in case.sql that creates and then drops  
both an '=' operator and the type it's for.  Given the right timing, that  
can cause a "cache lookup failed for type" failure in concurrent sessions,  
which see the '=' operator as a potential match for '=' in a query, but  
then the type is gone by the time they inquire into its properties.  
It might be nice to make that behavior more robust someday, but as a  
back-patchable solution, adjust the new test case so that the operator  
is never visible to other sessions.  Like the previous commit, back-patch  
to all supported branches.

When there is an identifiable REPLICA IDENTITY index on the target table,  
heap_update leaks the id_attrs bitmapset.  That's not many bytes, but it  
adds up over enough rows, since the code typically runs in a query-lifespan  
context.  Bug introduced in commit e55704d8b, which did a rather poor job

ExecReScanAgg's check for whether it could re-use a previously calculated  
hashtable neglected the possibility that the Agg node might reference  
PARAM_EXEC Params that are not referenced by its input plan node.  That's  
okay if the Params are in upper tlist or qual expressions; but if one  
appears in aggregate input expressions, then the hashtable contents need  
to be recomputed when the Param's value changes.  
  
To avoid unnecessary performance degradation in the case of a Param that  
isn't within an aggregate input, add logic to the planner to determine  
which Params are within aggregate inputs.  This requires a new field in  
struct Agg, but fortunately we never write plans to disk, so this isn't  
an initdb-forcing change.

Slot creation did not clear all fields upon creation. After start the  
memory is zeroed, but when a physical replication slot was created in  
the shared memory of a previously existing logical slot, catalog_xmin  
would not be cleared. That in turn would prevent vacuum from doing its  
duties.

This is somewhat cosmetic, since as long as you know what you are looking  
at, "10.0" is a serviceable substitute for "10".  But there is a potential  
for confusion between version numbers with minor numbers and those without  
--- we don't want people asking "why is psql saying 10.0 when my server is  
10.2".  Therefore, back-patch as far as practical, which turns out to be  
9.3.  I could have redone the patch to use fprintf(stderr) in place of  
psql_error(), but it seems more work than is warranted for branches that  
will be EOL or nearly so by the time v10 comes out.  
  
Although only psql seems to contain any code that needs this, I chose  
to put the support function into fe_utils, since it seems likely we'll  
need it in other client programs in future.  (In 9.3-9.5, use dumputils.c,  
the predecessor of fe_utils/string_utils.c.)

NUMERIC_MAX_PRECISION is a purely arbitrary constraint on the precision  
and scale you can write in a numeric typmod.  It might once have had  
something to do with the allowed range of a typmod-less numeric value,  
but at least since 9.1 we've allowed, and documented that we allowed,  
any value that would physically fit in the numeric storage format;  
which is something over 100000 decimal digits, not 1000.  
  
Hence, get rid of numeric_in()'s use of NUMERIC_MAX_PRECISION as a limit  
on the allowed range of the exponent in scientific-format input.  That was  
especially silly in view of the fact that you can enter larger numbers as  
long as you don't use 'e' to do it.  Just constrain the value enough to  
avoid localized overflow, and let make_result be the final arbiter of what  
is too large.  Likewise adjust ecpg's equivalent of this code.  
  
Also get rid of numeric_recv()'s use of NUMERIC_MAX_PRECISION to limit the  
number of base-NBASE digits it would accept.  That created a dump/restore  
hazard for binary COPY without doing anything useful; the wire-format  
limit on number of digits (65535) is about as tight as we would want.  
  
In HEAD, also get rid of pg_size_bytes()'s unnecessary intimacy with what  
the numeric range limit is.  That code doesn't exist in the back branches.  
  
Per gripe from Aravind Kumar.  Back-patch to all supported branches,  
since they all contain the documentation claim about allowed range of  
NUMERIC (cf commit cabf5d84b).

a trigger function, because no measurement has been taken but it printed

In the same vein, EXPLAIN (ANALYZE, BUFFERS) with non-text output format
