brin_page_type() and brin_metapage_info() did not enforce being called  
by superuser, like other pageinspect functions that take bytea do.  
Since they don't verify the passed page thoroughly, it is possible to  
use them to read the server memory with a carefully crafted bytea value,  
up to a file kilobytes from where the input bytea is located.  
  
Have them throw errors if called by a non-superuser.

Reset plan->row_security_env and planUserId

In the plancache, we check if the environment we planned the query under  
has changed in a way which requires us to re-plan, such as when the user  
for whom the plan was prepared changes and RLS is being used (and,  
therefore, there may be different policies to apply).  
  
Unfortunately, while those values were set and checked, they were not  
being reset when the query was re-planned and therefore, in cases where  
we change role, re-plan, and then change role again, we weren't  
re-planning again.  This leads to potentially incorrect policies being  
applied in cases where role-specific policies are used and a given query  
is planned under one role and then executed under other roles, which  
could happen under security definer functions or when a common user and  
query is planned initially and then re-used across multiple SET ROLEs.  
  
Further, extensions which made use of CopyCachedPlan() may suffer from  
similar issues as the RLS-related fields were not properly copied as  
part of the plan and therefore RevalidateCachedQuery() would copy in the  
current settings without invalidating the query.  
  
Fix by using the same approach used for 'search_path', where we set the  
correct values in CompleteCachedPlan(), check them early on in  
RevalidateCachedQuery() and then properly reset them if re-planning.  
Also, copy through the values during CopyCachedPlan().  
  
Pointed out by Ashutosh Bapat.  Reviewed by Michael Paquier.

pg_rewind: fsync target data directory.

Previously pg_rewind did not fsync any files. That's problematic, given  
that the target directory is modified. If the database was started  
afterwards, 2ce439f33 luckily already caused the data directory to be  
synced to disk at postmaster startup; reducing the scope of the problem.  
  
To fix, use initdb -S, at the end of the pg_rewind run. It doesn't seem  
worthwhile to duplicate the code into pg_rewind, and initdb -S is  
already used that way by pg_upgrade.

Returning the direct result of bit arithmetic, in a macro intended to be  
used in a boolean manner, can be problematic if the return value is  
stored in a variable of type 'bool'. If bool is implemented using C99's  
_Bool, that can lead to comparison failures if the variable is then  
compared again with the expression (see ginStepRight() for an example  
that fails), as _Bool forces the result to be 0/1. That happens in some  
configurations of newer MSVC compilers.  It's also problematic when  
storing the result of such an expression in a narrower type.  
  
Several gin macros have been declared in that style since gin's initial  
commit in 8a3631f8d86.  
  
There's a lot more macros like this, but this is the only one causing  
regression test failures; and I don't want to commit and backpatch a  
larger patch with lots of conflicts just before the next set of minor  
releases.

We really need to sync all of our IANA-derived timezone code with upstream,  
but that's going to be a large patch and I certainly don't care to shove  
such a thing into stable branches immediately before a release.  As a  
stopgap, copy just the tzcode2016c logic that checks validity of timezone  
abbreviations.  This prevents getting multiple "time zone abbreviation  
differs from POSIX standard" bleats with tzdata 2014b and later.

DST law changes in Azerbaijan, Chile, Haiti, Palestine, and Russia (Altai,  
Astrakhan, Kirov, Sakhalin, Ulyanovsk regions).  Historical corrections  
for Lithuania, Moldova, Russia (Kaliningrad, Samara, Volgograd).  
  
As of 2015b, the keepers of the IANA timezone database started to use  
numeric time zone abbreviations (e.g., "+04") instead of inventing  
abbreviations not found in the wild like "ASTT".  This causes our rather  
old copy of zic to whine "warning: time zone abbreviation differs from  
POSIX standard" several times during "make install".  This warning is  
harmless according to the IANA folk, and I don't see any problems with  
these abbreviations in some simple tests; but it seems like now would be  
a good time to update our copy of the tzcode stuff.  I'll look into that  
soon.

Unfortunately, every version of glibc thus far tested has bugs whereby  
strcoll() ordering does not match strxfrm() ordering as required by  
the standard.  This can result in, for example, corrupted indexes.  
Disabling abbreviated keys in these cases slows down non-C-collation  
string sorting considerably, but there seems to be no practical  
alternative.  Users who are confident that their libc implementations  
are solid in this regard can re-enable the optimization by compiling  
with TRUST_STRXFRM.  
  
Users who have built indexes using PostgreSQL 9.5 or PostgreSQL 9.5.1  
should REINDEX if there is a possibility that they may have been  
affected by this problem.

In commit afb9249d06f47d7a, we (probably I) made ExecLockRows assign  
null test tuples to all relations of the query while setting up to do an  
EvalPlanQual recheck for a newly-updated locked row.  This was sheerest  
brain fade: we should only set test tuples for relations that are lockable  
by the LockRows node, and in particular empty test tuples are only sensible  
for inheritance child relations that weren't the source of the current  
tuple from their inheritance tree.  Setting a null test tuple for an  
unrelated table causes it to return NULLs when it should not, as exhibited  
in bug #14034 from Bronislav Houdek.  To add insult to injury, doing it the  
wrong way required two loops where one would suffice; so the corrected code  
is even a bit shorter and faster.  
  
Add a regression test case based on his example, and back-patch to 9.5  
where the bug was introduced.

Modern Perl has removed psed from its core distribution, so it might not  
be readily available on some build platforms. We therefore replace its  
use with a Perl script generated by s2p, which is equivalent to the sed  
script. The latter is retained for non-MSVC builds to avoid creating a  
new hard dependency on Perl for non-Windows tarball builds.

In HEAD, fix incorrect field width for hours part of OF when tm_gmtoff is  
negative.  This was introduced by commit 2d87eedc1d4468d3 as a result of  
falsely applying a pattern that's correct when + signs are omitted, which  
is not the case for OF.  
  
In 9.4, fix missing abs() call that allowed a sign to be attached to the  
minutes part of OF.  This was fixed in 9.5 by 9b43d73b3f9bef27, but for  
inscrutable reasons not back-patched.  
  
In all three versions, ensure that the sign of tm_gmtoff is correctly  
reported even when the GMT offset is less than 1 hour.  
  
Add regression tests, which evidently we desperately need here.

This didn't work because when we dropped and re-established a database  
connection, we did not bother to reset session-specific state such as  
the statements-are-prepared flags.  
  
The st->prepared[] array certainly needs to be flushed, and I cleared a  
couple of other fields as well that couldn't possibly retain meaningful  
state for a new connection.  
  
In passing, fix some bogus comments and strange field order choices.

INSERT ... ON CONFLICT's precheck may have to wait on the outcome of  
another insertion, which may or may not itself be a speculative  
insertion.  This wait is not necessarily associated with an exclusion  
constraint, but was always reported that way in log messages if the wait  
happened to involve a tuple that had no speculative token.  
  
Initially discovered through use of ON CONFLICT DO NOTHING, where  
spurious references to exclusion constraints in log messages were more  
likely.

Previously, we included <xlocale.h> only if necessary to get the definition  
of type locale_t.  According to notes in PGAC_TYPE_LOCALE_T, this is  
important because on some versions of glibc that file supplies an  
incompatible declaration of locale_t.  (This info may be obsolete, because  
on my RHEL6 box that seems to be the *only* definition of locale_t; but  
there may still be glibc's in the wild for which it's a live concern.)  
  
It turns out though that on FreeBSD and maybe other BSDen, you can get  
locale_t from stdlib.h or locale.h but mbstowcs_l() and friends only from  
<xlocale.h>.  This was leaving us compiling calls to mbstowcs_l() and  
friends with no visible prototype, which causes a warning and could  
possibly cause actual trouble, since it's not declared to return int.  
  
Hence, adjust the configure checks so that we'll include <xlocale.h>  
either if it's necessary to get type locale_t or if it's necessary to  
get a declaration of mbstowcs_l().  
  
Report and patch by Aleksander Alekseev, somewhat whacked around by me.  
Back-patch to all supported branches, since we have been using  
mbstowcs_l() since 9.1.

On the machines I tried this on, pressing TAB after SECURITY LABEL led to

Commit d88976cfa1302e8d removed this code from ginFreeScanKeys():  
-		if (entry->list)  
-			pfree(entry->list);  
evidently in the belief that that ItemPointer array is allocated in the  
keyCtx and so would be reclaimed by the following MemoryContextReset.  
Unfortunately, it isn't and it won't.  It'd likely be a good idea for  
that to become so, but as a simple and back-patchable fix in the  
meantime, restore this code to ginFreeScanKeys().  
  
Also, add a similar pfree to where startScanEntry() is about to zero out  
entry->list.  I am not sure if there are any code paths where this  
change prevents a leak today, but it seems like cheap future-proofing.  
  
In passing, make the initial allocation of so->entries[] use palloc  
not palloc0.  The code doesn't depend on unused entries being zero;  
if it did, the array-enlargement code in ginFillScanEntry() would be  
wrong.  So using palloc0 initially can only serve to confuse readers  
about what the invariant is.

Commit a2dabf0e1dda93c8 had the bright idea that it could modify a "const"  
global variable if it merely casted away const from a pointer.  This does  
not work on platforms where the compiler puts "const" variables into  
read-only storage.  Depressingly, we evidently have no such platforms in

The Visual Studio 2013 CRT generates invalid code when it makes a 64-bit  
build that is later used on a CPU that supports AVX2 instructions using a  
version of Windows before 7SP1/2008R2SP1.  
  
Detect this combination, and in those cases turn off the generation of  
FMA3, per recommendation from the Visual Studio team.  
  
The bug is actually in the CRT shipping with Visual Studio 2013, but  
Microsoft have stated they're only fixing it in newer major versions.  
The fix is therefor conditioned specifically on being built with this  
version of Visual Studio, and not previous or later versions.

Renaming a file using rename(2) is not guaranteed to be durable in face  
of crashes. Use the previously added durable_rename()/durable_link_or_rename()  
in various places where we previously just renamed files.  
  
Most of the changed call sites are arguably not critical, but it seems  
better to err on the side of too much durability.  The most prominent  
known case where the previously missing fsyncs could cause data loss is  
crashes at the end of a checkpoint. After the actual checkpoint has been  
performed, old WAL files are recycled. When they're filled, their  
contents are fdatasynced, but we did not fsync the containing  
directory. An OS/hardware crash in an unfortunate moment could then end  
up leaving that file with its old name, but new content; WAL replay  
would thus not replay it.

Renaming a file using rename(2) is not guaranteed to be durable in face  
of crashes; especially on filesystems like xfs and ext4 when mounted  
with data=writeback. To be certain that a rename() atomically replaces  
the previous file contents in the face of crashes and different  
filesystems, one has to fsync the old filename, rename the file, fsync  
the new filename, fsync the containing directory.  This sequence is not  
generally adhered to currently; which exposes us to data loss risks. To  
avoid having to repeat this arduous sequence, introduce  
durable_rename(), which wraps all that.  
  
Also add durable_link_or_rename(). Several places use link() (with a  
fallback to rename()) to rename a file, trying to avoid replacing the  
target file out of paranoia. Some of those rename sequences need to be  
durable as well. There seems little reason extend several copies of the  
same logic, so centralize the link() callers.  
  
This commit does not yet make use of the new functions; they're used in  
a followup commit.

An index search using a row comparison such as ROW(a, b) > ROW('x', 'y')  
would stop upon reaching a NULL entry in the "b" column, ignoring the  
fact that there might be non-NULL "b" values associated with later values  
of "a".  This happens because _bt_mark_scankey_required() marks the  
subsidiary scankey for "b" as required, which is just wrong: it's for  
a column after the one with the first inequality key (namely "a"), and  
thus can't be considered a required match.  
  
This bit of brain fade dates back to the very beginnings of our support  
for indexed ROW() comparisons, in 2006.  Kind of astonishing that no one  
came across it before Glen Takahashi, in bug #14010.  
  
Back-patch to all supported versions.  
  
Note: the given test case doesn't actually fail in unpatched 9.1, evidently  
because the fix for bug #6278 (i.e., stopping at nulls in either scan  
direction) is required to make it fail.  I'm sure I could devise a case  
that fails in 9.1 as well, perhaps with something involving making a cursor  
back up; but it doesn't seem worth the trouble.

Python's allocator does some low-level tricks for efficiency;  
unfortunately they trigger valgrind errors. Those tricks can be disabled  
making instrumentation easier; but few people testing postgres will have  
such a build of python. So add broad suppressions of the resulting  
errors.

Coverity and inspection for the issue addressed in fd45d16f found some  
questionable code.  
  
Specifically coverity noticed that the wrong length was added in  
ReorderBufferSerializeChange() - without immediate negative consequences  
as the variable isn't used afterwards.  During code-review and testing I  
noticed that a bit of space was wasted when allocating tuple bufs in  
several places.  Thirdly, the debug memset()s in  
ReorderBufferGetTupleBuf() reduce the error checking valgrind can do.

In c8f621c43 I forgot to account for MAXALIGN when allocating a new  
tuplebuf in ReorderBufferGetTupleBuf(). That happens to currently not  
cause active problems on a number of platforms because the affected  
pointer is already aligned, but others, like ppc and hppa, trigger this  
in the regression test, due to a debug memset clearing memory.  
  
Fix that.

There were two places in spell.c that supposed that they could search  
for a location in a string produced by lowerstr() and then transpose  
the offset into the original string.  But this fails completely if  
lowerstr() transforms any characters into characters of different byte  
length, as can happen in Turkish UTF8 for instance.  
  
We'd added some comments about this coding in commit 51e78ab4ff328296,  
but failed to realize that it was not merely confusing but wrong.  
  
Coverity complained about this code years ago, but in such an opaque  
fashion that nobody understood what it was on about.  I'm not entirely  
sure that this issue *is* what it's on about, actually, but perhaps  
this patch will shut it up -- and in any case the problem is clear.

logical decoding: Fix handling of large old tuples with replica identity full.

When decoding the old version of an UPDATE or DELETE change, and if that  
tuple was bigger than MaxHeapTupleSize, we either Assert'ed out, or  
failed in more subtle ways in non-assert builds.  Normally individual  
tuples aren't bigger than MaxHeapTupleSize, with big datums toasted.  
But that's not the case for the old version of a tuple for logical  
decoding; the replica identity is logged as one piece. With the default  
replica identity btree limits that to small tuples, but that's not the  
case for FULL.  
  
Change the tuple buffer infrastructure to separate allocate over-large  
tuples, instead of always going through the slab cache.  
  
This unfortunately requires changing the ReorderBufferTupleBuf  
definition, we need to store the allocated size someplace. To avoid  
requiring output plugins to recompile, don't store HeapTupleHeaderData  
directly after HeapTupleData, but point to it via t_data; that leaves  
rooms for the allocated size.  As there's no reason for an output plugin  
to look at ReorderBufferTupleBuf->t_data.header, remove the field. It  
was just a minor convenience having it directly accessible.

Somehow I managed to flip the order of restoring old & new tuples when  
de-spooling a change in a large transaction from disk. This happens to  
only take effect when a change is spooled to disk which has old/new  
versions of the tuple. That only is the case for UPDATEs where he  
primary key changed or where replica identity is changed to FULL.  
  
The tests didn't catch this because either spooled updates, or updates  
that changed primary keys, were tested; not both at the same time.

Logical decoding's reorderbuffer keeps transactions in an LSN ordered  
list for efficiency. To make that's efficiently possible upper-level  
xids are forced to be logged before nested subtransaction xids.  That  
only works though if these records are all looked at: Unfortunately we  
didn't do so for e.g. row level locks, which are otherwise uninteresting  
for logical decoding.  
  
This could lead to errors like:  
"ERROR: subxact logged without previous toplevel record".  
  
It's not sufficient to just look at row locking records, the xid could  
appear first due to a lot of other types of records (which will trigger  
the transaction to be marked logged with MarkCurrentTransactionIdLoggedIfAny).  
So invent infrastructure to tell reorderbuffer about xids seen, when  
they'd otherwise not pass through reorderbuffer.c.

Ignore recovery_min_apply_delay until recovery has reached consistent state

Previously recovery_min_apply_delay was applied even before recovery  
had reached consistency. This could cause us to wait a long time  
unexpectedly for read-only connections to be allowed. It's problematic  
because the standby was useless during that wait time.  
  
This patch changes recovery_min_apply_delay so that it's applied once  
the database has reached the consistent state. That is, even if the delay  
is set, the standby tries to replay WAL records as fast as possible until  
it has reached consistency.

for json_to_recordset, jsonb_to_record, jsonb_to_recordset.  The latter  
three do not exhibit the same bug (which suggests that we may be missing  
some opportunities to share code...) but testing seems like a good idea

This error message was written with only ON SELECT rules in mind, but since  
then we also made RETURNING-clause targetlists go through the same logic.  
This means that you got a rather off-topic error message if you tried to  
add a rule with RETURNING to a table having dropped columns.  Ideally we'd  
just support that, but some preliminary investigation says that it might be  
a significant amount of work.  Seeing that Nicklas Avén's complaint is the  
first one we've gotten about this in the ten years or so that the code's  
been like that, I'm unwilling to put much time into it.  Instead, improve  
the error report by issuing a different message for RETURNING cases, and  
revise the associated comment based on this investigation.

When converting an RTE with securityQuals into a security barrier  
subquery RTE, ensure that the Vars in the new subquery's targetlist  
all have varlevelsup = 0 so that they correctly refer to the  
underlying base relation being wrapped.  
  
The original code was creating new Vars by copying them from existing  
Vars referencing the base relation found elsewhere in the query, but  
failed to account for the fact that such Vars could come from sublink  
subqueries, and hence have varlevelsup > 0. In practice it looks like  
this could only happen with nested security barrier views, where the  
outer view has a WHERE clause containing a correlated subquery, due to  
the order in which the Vars are processed.

In 4b4b680c3 I accidentally used sizeof(PrivateRefCountArray) instead of  
sizeof(PrivateRefCountEntry) when creating the refcount overflow  
hashtable. As the former is bigger than the latter, this luckily only  
resulted in a slightly increased memory usage when many buffers are  
pinned in a backend.

Dead or half-dead index leaf pages were incorrectly reported as live, as a  
consequence of a code rearrangement I made (during a moment of severe brain  
fade, evidently) in commit d287818eb514d431.  
  
The index metapage was not counted in index_size, causing that result to  
not agree with the actual index size on-disk.  
  
Index root pages were not counted in internal_pages, which is inconsistent  
compared to the case of a root that's also a leaf (one-page index), where  
the root would be counted in leaf_pages.  Aside from that inconsistency,  
this could lead to additional transient discrepancies between the reported  
page counts and index_size, since it's possible for pgstatindex's scan to  
see zero or multiple pages marked as BTP_ROOT, if the root moves due to  
a split during the scan.  With these fixes, index_size will always be  
exactly one page more than the sum of the displayed page counts.  
  
Also, the index_size result was incorrectly documented as being measured in  
pages; it's always been measured in bytes.  (While fixing that, I couldn't  
resist doing some small additional wordsmithing on the pgstattuple docs.)  
  
Including the metapage causes the reported index_size to not be zero for  
an empty index.  To preserve the desired property that the pgstattuple  
regression test results are platform-independent (ie, BLCKSZ configuration  
independent), scale the index_size result in the regression tests.  
  
The documentation issue was reported by Otsuka Kenji, and the inconsistent  
root page counting by Peter Geoghegan; the other problems noted by me.

A function name that's double-quoted in SQL can contain almost any  
characters, but we were using that name directly as part of the name  
generated for the Python-level function, and Python doesn't like  
anything that isn't pretty much a standard identifier.  To fix,  
replace anything that isn't an ASCII letter or digit with an underscore  
in the generated name.  This doesn't create any risk of duplicate Python  
function names because we were already appending the function OID to  
the generated name to ensure uniqueness.  Per bug #13960 from Jim Nasby.

Clarify the description of which transactions will block a CREATE INDEX  
CONCURRENTLY command from proceeding, and mention that the index might  
still not be usable after CREATE INDEX completes.  (This happens if the  
index build detected broken HOT chains, so that pg_index.indcheckxmin gets  
set, and there are open old transactions preventing the xmin horizon from  
advancing past the index's initial creation.  I didn't want to explain what  
broken HOT chains are, though, so I omitted an explanation of exactly when  
old transactions prevent the index from being used.)

pgbench: avoid FD_ISSET on an invalid file descriptor

The original code wasn't careful to test the file descriptor returned by  
PQsocket() for an invalid socket.  If an invalid socket did turn up,  
that would amount to calling FD_ISSET with fd = -1, whereby undefined  
behavior can be invoked.  
  
To fix, test file descriptor for validity and stop further processing if  
that fails.  
  
Problem noticed by Coverity.  
  
There is an existing FD_ISSET callsite that does check for invalid  
sockets beforehand, but the error message reported by it was  
strerror(errno); in testing the aforementioned change, that turns out to  
result in "bad socket: Success" which isn't terribly helpful.  Instead  
use PQerrorMessage() in both places which is more likely to contain an  
useful error message.

Reportedly, some compilers warn about tests like "c < 0" if c is unsigned,  
and hence complain about the character range checks I added in commit  
3bb3f42f3749d40b8d4de65871e8d828b18d4a45.  This is a bit of a pain since  
the regex library doesn't really want to assume that chr is unsigned.  
However, since any such reconfiguration would involve manual edits of  
regcustom.h anyway, we can put it on the shoulders of whoever wants to  
do that to adjust this new range-checking macro correctly.

It turns out that on FreeBSD-derived platforms (including OS X), the  
*scanf() family of functions is pretty much brain-dead about multibyte  
characters.  In particular it will apply isspace() to individual bytes  
of input even when those bytes are part of a multibyte character, thus  
allowing false recognition of a field-terminating space.  
  
We appear to have little alternative other than instituting a coding  
rule that *scanf() is not to be used if the input string might contain  
multibyte characters.  (There was some discussion of relying on "%ls",  
but that probably just moves the portability problem somewhere else,  
and besides it doesn't fully prevent BSD *scanf() from using isspace().)  
  
This patch is a down payment on that: it gets rid of use of sscanf()  
to parse ispell dictionary files, which are certainly at great risk  
of having a problem.  The code is cleaner this way anyway, though  
a bit longer.  
  
In passing, improve a few comments.
