A couple of test cases had connect_timeout=14, a value that seems  
to have been plucked from a hat.  While it's more than sufficient  
for normal cases, slow/overloaded buildfarm machines can get a timeout  
failure here, as per recent report from "sungazer".  Increase to 180  
seconds, which is in line with our typical timeouts elsewhere in  
the regression tests.  
  
Back-patch to 9.6; the code looks different in 9.5, and this doesn't  
seem to be quite worth the effort to adapt to that.

The new hlCover() algorithm that I introduced in commit c9b0c678d  
turns out to potentially take O(N^2) or worse time on long documents,  
if there are many occurrences of individual query words but few or no  
substrings that actually satisfy the query.  (One way to hit this  
behavior is with a "common_word & rare_word" type of query.)  This  
seems unavoidable given the original goal of checking every substring  
of the document, so we have to back off that idea.  Fortunately, it  
seems unlikely that anyone would really want headlines spanning all of  
a long document, so we can avoid the worse-than-linear behavior by  
imposing a maximum length of substring that we'll consider.  
  
For now, just hard-wire that maximum length as a multiple of max_words  
times max_fragments.  Perhaps at some point somebody will argue for  
exposing it as a ts_headline parameter, but I'm hesitant to make such  
a feature addition in a back-patched bug fix.  
  
I also noted that the hlFirstIndex() function I'd added in that  
commit was unnecessarily stupid: it really only needs to check whether  
a HeadlineWordEntry's item pointer is null or not.  This wouldn't make  
all that much difference in typical cases with queries having just  
a few terms, but a cycle shaved is a cycle earned.  
  
In addition, add a CHECK_FOR_INTERRUPTS call in TS_execute_recurse.  
This ensures that hlCover's loop is cancellable if it manages to take  
a long time, and it may protect some other TS_execute callers as well.  
  
Back-patch to 9.6 as the previous commit was.  I also chose to add the  
CHECK_FOR_INTERRUPTS call to 9.5.  The old hlCover() algorithm seems  
to avoid the O(N^2) behavior, at least on the test case I tried, but  
nonetheless it's not very quick on a long document.  
  
Per report from Stephen Frost.

Backpatch an assertion (that was originally added to Postgres 12 by  
commit dd299df8189) that seems broadly useful.  The assertion can detect  
violations of the HOT invariant (i.e. no two index tuples can point to  
the same heap TID) when CREATE INDEX somehow incorrectly allows that to  
take place.  
  
For example, a IndexBuildHeapScan/heapam_index_build_range_scan bug  
might result in two tuples that both point to the same heap TID.  If  
these two tuples also happen to be duplicates, the assertion will fail.

Fix corner case with 16kB-long decompression in pgcrypto, take 2

A compressed stream may end with an empty packet.  In this case  
decompression finishes before reading the empty packet and the  
remaining stream packet causes a failure in reading the following  
data.  This commit makes sure to consume such extra data, avoiding a  
failure when decompression the data.  This corner case was reproducible  
easily with a data length of 16kB, and existed since e94dd6a.  A cheap  
regression test is added to cover this case based on a random,  
incompressible string.  
  
The first attempt of this patch has allowed to find an older failure  
within the compression logic of pgcrypto, fixed by b9b6105.  This  
involved SLES 15 with z390 where a custom flavor of libz gets used.  
Bonus thanks to Mark Wong for providing access to the specific  
environment.

contrib/pgcrypto mishandled the case where deflate() does not consume  
all of the offered input on the first try.  It reset the next_in pointer  
to the start of the input instead of leaving it alone, causing the wrong  
data to be fed to the next deflate() call.  
  
This has been broken since pgcrypto was committed.  The reason for the  
lack of complaints seems to be that it's fairly hard to get stock zlib  
to not consume all the input, so long as the output buffer is big enough  
(which it normally would be in pgcrypto's usage; AFAICT the input is  
always going to be packetized into packets no larger than ZIP_OUT_BUF).  
However, IBM's zlibNX implementation for AIX evidently will do it  
in some cases.  
  
I did not add a test case for this, because I couldn't find one that  
would fail with stock zlib.  When we put back the test case for  
bug #16476, that will cover the zlibNX situation well enough.  
  
While here, write deflate()'s second argument as Z_NO_FLUSH per its  
API spec, instead of hard-wiring the value zero.  
  
Per buildfarm results and subsequent investigation.

TLS 1.3 uses a different way of specifying ciphers and a different  
OpenSSL API.  PostgreSQL currently does not support setting those  
ciphers.  For now, just document this.  In the future, support for  
this might be added somehow.

Switch pg_test_fsync to use binary mode on Windows

pg_test_fsync has always opened files using the text mode on Windows, as  
this is the default mode used if not enforced by _setmode().  
  
This fixes a failure when running pg_test_fsync down to 12 because  
O_DSYNC and the text mode are not able to work together nicely.  We  
fixed the handling of O_DSYNC in 12~ for the tool by switching to the  
concurrent-safe version of fopen() in src/port/ with 0ba06e0.  And  
40cfe86, by enforcing the text mode for compatibility reasons if O_TEXT  
or O_BINARY are not specified by the caller, broke pg_test_fsync.  For  
all versions, this avoids any translation overhead, and pg_test_fsync  
should test binary writes, so it is a gain in all cases.  
  
Note that O_DSYNC is still not handled correctly in ~11, leading to  
pg_test_fsync to show insanely high numbers for open_datasync() (using  
this property it is easy to notice that the binary mode is much  
faster).  This would require a backpatch of 0ba06e0 and 40cfe86, which  
could potentially break existing applications, so this is left out.  
  
There are no TAP tests for this tool yet, so I have checked all builds  
manually using MSVC.  We could invent a new option to run a single  
transaction instead of using a duration of 1s to make the tests a  
maximum short, but this is left as future work.

This commit back-patches the v12-era commits a73d08319, cc92cca43,  
and 7570df0f3 into supported pre-v12 branches.  The net effect is to  
eliminate our former dependency on the never-standard sys_siglist[]  
array, instead using POSIX-standard strsignal(3).  
  
What motivates doing this now is that glibc just removed sys_siglist[]  
from the set of symbols available to newly-built programs.  While our  
code can survive without sys_siglist[], it then fails to print any  
description of the signal that killed a child process, which is a  
non-negligible loss of friendliness.  We can expect that people will  
be wanting to build the back branches on platforms that include this  
change, so we need to do something.  
  
Since strsignal(3) has existed for quite a long time, and we've not  
had any trouble with these patches so far in v12, it seems safe to  
back-patch into older branches.

When working with an online source cluster, pg_rewind gets a list of all  
the files in the source data directory using a WITH RECURSIVE query,  
returning a NULL result for a file's metadata if it gets removed between  
the moment it is listed in a directory and the moment its metadata is  
obtained with pg_stat_file() (say a recycled WAL segment).  The query  
result was processed in such a way that for each tuple we checked only  
that the first file's metadata was NULL.  This could have two  
consequences, both resulting in a failure of the rewind:  
- If the first tuple referred to a removed file, all files from the  
source would be ignored.  
- Any file actually missing would not be considered as such.  
  
While on it, rework slightly the code so as no values are saved if we  
know that a file is going to be skipped.

An ALTER TABLE to validate a foreign key in which another subcommand  
already caused a pending table rewrite could fail due to ALTER TABLE  
attempting to validate the foreign key before the actual table rewrite  
takes place.  This situation could result in an error such as:  
  
ERROR:  could not read block 0 in file "base/nnnnn/nnnnn": read only 0 of 8192 bytes  
  
The failure here was due to the SPI call which validates the foreign key  
trying to access an index which is yet to be rebuilt.  
  
Similarly, we also incorrectly tried to validate CHECK constraints before  
the heap had been rewritten.  
  
The fix for both is to delay constraint validation until phase 3, after  
the table has been rewritten.  For CHECK constraints this means a slight  
behavioral change.  Previously ALTER TABLE VALIDATE CONSTRAINT on  
inheritance tables would be validated from the bottom up.  This was  
different from the order of evaluation when a new CHECK constraint was  
added.  The changes made here aligns the VALIDATE CONSTRAINT evaluation  
order for inheritance tables to be the same as ADD CONSTRAINT, which is  
generally top-down.

The qual pushdown logic assumed that all Vars in a restriction clause  
must be Vars referencing subquery outputs; but since we introduced  
LATERAL, it's possible for such a Var to be a lateral reference instead.  
This led to an assertion failure in debug builds.  In a non-debug  
build, there might be no ill effects (if qual_is_pushdown_safe decided  
the qual was unsafe anyway), or we could get failures later due to  
construction of an invalid plan.  I've not gone to much length to  
characterize the possible failures, but at least segfaults in the  
executor have been observed.  
  
Given that this has been busted since 9.3 and it took this long for  
anybody to notice, I judge that the case isn't worth going to great  
lengths to optimize.  Hence, fix by just teaching qual_is_pushdown_safe  
that such quals are unsafe to push down, matching the previous behavior  
when it accidentally didn't fail.

Avoid trying to restore table ACLs and per-column ACLs in parallel.

Parallel pg_restore has always supposed that ACL items for different  
objects are independent and can be restored in parallel without  
conflicts.  However, there is one case where this fails: because  
REVOKE on a table is defined to also revoke the privilege(s) at  
column level, we can't restore per-column ACLs till after we restore  
any table-level privileges on their table.  Failure to honor this  
restriction can lead to "tuple concurrently updated" errors during  
parallel restore, or even to the per-column ACLs silently disappearing  
because the table-level REVOKE is executed afterwards.  
  
To fix, add a dependency from each column-level ACL item to its table's  
ACL item, if there is one.  Note that this doesn't fix the hazard  
for pre-existing archive files, only for ones made with a corrected  
pg_dump.  Given that the bug's been there quite awhile without  
field reports, I think this is acceptable.  
  
This requires changing the API of pg_dump's dumpACL() function.  
To keep its argument list from getting even longer, I removed the  
"CatalogId objCatId" argument, which has been unused for ages.

After running GetForeignRelSize for a foreign table, adjust rel->tuples  
to be at least as large as rel->rows.  This prevents bizarre behavior  
in estimate_num_groups() and perhaps other places, especially in the  
scenario where rel->tuples is zero because pg_class.reltuples is  
(suggesting that ANALYZE has never been run for the table).  As things  
stood, we'd end up estimating one group out of any GROUP BY on such a  
table, whereas the default group-count estimate is more likely to result  
in a sane plan.  
  
Also, clarify in the documentation that GetForeignRelSize has the option  
to override the rel->tuples value if it has a better idea of what to use  
than what is in pg_class.reltuples.

Commit ecd9e9f0b fixed the problem in the wrong place, causing unwanted  
side-effects on the behavior of GetNextTempTableSpace().  Instead,  
let's make SharedFileSetInit() responsible for subbing in the value  
of MyDatabaseTableSpace when the default tablespace is called for.  
  
The convention about what is in the tempTableSpaces[] array is  
evidently insufficiently documented, so try to improve that.  
  
It also looks like SharedFileSetInit() is doing the wrong thing in the  
case where temp_tablespaces is empty.  It was hard-wiring use of the  
pg_default tablespace, but it seems like using MyDatabaseTableSpace  
is more consistent with what happens for other temp files.  
  
Back-patch the reversion of PrepareTempTablespaces()'s behavior to  
9.5, as ecd9e9f0b was.  The changes in SharedFileSetInit() go back  
to v11 where that was introduced.  (Note there is net zero code change  
before v11 from these two patch sets, so nothing to release-note.)

A likely copy/paste error in 98e8b480532 from  back in 2004 would  
cause temp tablespace to be reset to InvalidOid if temp_tablespaces  
was set to the same value as the primary tablespace in the database.  
This would cause shared filesets (such as for parallel hash joins)  
to ignore them, putting the temporary files in the default tablespace  
instead of the configured one. The bug is in the old code, but it  
appears to have been exposed only once we had shared filesets.

I forgot that INT64_FORMAT can't be used with sscanf on Windows.  
Use the same trick of sscanf'ing into a temp variable as we do in  
some other places in zic.c.  
  
The upstream IANA code avoids the portability problem by relying on  
<inttypes.h>'s SCNdFAST64 macro.  Once we're requiring C99 in all  
branches, we should do likewise and drop this set of diffs from  
upstream.  For now, though, a hack seems fine, since we do not  
actually care about leapseconds anyway.

explain_get_index_name() applied quote_identifier() to the index name.  
This is fine for text output, but the non-text output formats all have  
their own quoting conventions and would much rather start from the  
actual index name.  For example in JSON you'd get something like  
  
       "Index Name": "\"My Index\"",  
  
which is surely not desirable, especially when the same does not  
happen for table names.  Hence, move the responsibility for applying  
quoting out to the callers, where it can go into already-existing  
special code paths for text format.  
  
This changes the API spec for users of explain_get_index_name_hook:  
before, they were supposed to apply quote_identifier() if necessary,  
now they should not.  Research suggests that the only publicly  
available user of the hook is hypopg, and it actually forgot to  
apply quoting anyway, so it's fine.  (In any case, there's no  
behavioral change for the output of a hook as seen in non-text  
EXPLAIN formats, so this won't break any case that programs should  
be relying on.)  
  
Digging in the commit logs, it appears that quoting was included in  
explain_get_index_name's duties when commit 604ffd280 invented it;  
and that was fine at the time because we only had text output format.  
This should have been rethought when non-text formats were invented,  
but it wasn't.  
  
This is a fairly clear bug for users of non-text EXPLAIN formats,  
so back-patch to all supported branches.

the tz database.  While for now it's our choice whether to keep  
supplying one in our own builds, installations built with  
--with-system-tzdata will soon be needing to cope with that file not  
being present, at least on some platforms.  
  
This causes a problem for the horology test, which expected the  
nonstandard POSIX zone spec "CST7CDT" to apply pre-2007 US daylight  
savings rules.  That does happen if the posixrules file supplies such  
information, but otherwise the test produces undesired results.  
To fix, add an explicit transition date rule that matches 2005 practice.  
(We could alternatively have switched the test to use some real time  
zone, but it seems useful to have coverage of this type of zone spec.)  
  
While at it, update a documentation example that also relied on  
"CST7CDT"; use a real-world zone name instead.  Also, document why  
the zone names EST5EDT, CST6CDT, MST7MDT, PST8PDT aren't subject to  
similar failures when "posixrules" is missing.  
  
Back-patch to all supported branches, since the hazard is the same  
for all.

This was a danger only for --disable-spinlocks in combination with  
atomic operations unsupported by the current platform.  
  
While atomics.c was careful to signal that a separate semaphore ought  
to be used when spinlock emulation is active, spin.c didn't actually  
implement that mechanism. That's my (Andres') fault, it seems to have  
gotten lost during the development of the atomic operations support.  
  
Fix that issue and add test for nesting atomic operations inside a  
spinlock.

As s_lock_test, the already existing test for spinlocks, isn't run in  
an automated fashion (and doesn't test a normal backend environment),  
adding tests that are run as part of a normal regression run is a good  
idea. Particularly in light of several recent and upcoming spinlock  
related fixes.  
  
Currently the new tests are run as part of the pre-existing  
test_atomic_ops() test. That perhaps can be quibbled about, but for  
now seems ok.  
  
The only operations that s_lock_test tests but the new tests don't are  
the detection of a stuck spinlock and S_LOCK_FREE (which is otherwise  
unused, not implemented on all platforms, and will be removed).  
  
This currently contains a test for more than INT_MAX spinlocks (only  
run with --disable-spinlocks), to ensure the recent commit fixing a  
bug with more than INT_MAX spinlock initializations is correct. That  
test is somewhat slow, so we might want to disable it after a few  
days.  
  
It might be worth retiring s_lock_test after this. The added coverage  
of a stuck spinlock probably isn't worth the added complexity?

We'd glossed over most of this complexity for years, but it's hard  
to avoid writing it all down now, so that we can explain what happens  
when there's no "posixrules" file in the IANA time zone database.  
That was at best a tiny minority situation till now, but it's likely  
to become quite common in the future, so we'd better explain it.  
  
Nonetheless, we don't really encourage people to use POSIX zone specs;  
picking a named zone is almost always what you really want, unless  
perhaps you're stuck with an out-of-date zone database.  Therefore,  
let's shove all this detail into an appendix.  
  
Patch by me; thanks to Robert Haas for help with some awkward wording.

This absorbs a leap-second-related bug fix in localtime.c, and  
teaches zic to handle an expiration marker in the leapseconds file.  
Neither are of any interest to us (for the foreseeable future  
anyway), but we need to stay more or less in sync with upstream.  
  
Also adjust some over-eager changes in the README from commit 957338418.  
I have no intention of making changes that require C99 in this code,  
until such time as all the live back branches require C99.  Otherwise  
back-patching will get too exciting.  
  
For the same reason, absorb assorted whitespace and other cosmetic  
changes from HEAD into the back branches; mostly this reflects use of  
improved versions of pgindent.  
  
All in all then, quite a boring update.  But I figured I'd get it  
done while I was looking at this code.

When merging two NumericAggStates, the code missed adding the new  
state's NaNcount unless its N was also nonzero; since those counts  
are independent, this is wrong.  
  
This would only have visible effect if some partial aggregate scans  
found only NaNs while earlier ones found only non-NaNs; then we could  
end up falsely deciding that there were no NaNs and fail to return a  
NaN final result as expected.  That's pretty improbable, so it's no  
surprise this hasn't been reported from the field.  Still, it's a bug.  
  
I didn't try to produce a regression test that would show the bug,  
but I did notice that these functions weren't being reached at all  
in our regression tests, so I improved the tests to at least  
exercise them.  With these additions, I see pretty complete code  
coverage on the aggregation-related functions in numeric.c.  
  
Back-patch to 9.6 where this code was introduced.  (I only added  
the improved test case as far back as v10, though, since the  
relevant part of aggregates.sql isn't there at all in 9.6.)

SSI's HeapCheckForSerializableConflictOut() test failed to correctly  
handle conditions involving a concurrently inserted tuple which is later  
concurrently updated by a separate transaction .  A SELECT statement  
that called HeapCheckForSerializableConflictOut() could end up using the  
same XID (updater's XID) for both the original tuple, and the successor  
tuple, missing the XID of the xact that created the original tuple  
entirely.  This only happened when neither tuple from the chain was  
visible to the transaction's MVCC snapshot.  
  
The observable symptoms of this bug were subtle.  A pair of transactions  
could commit, with the later transaction failing to observe the effects  
of the earlier transaction (because of the confusion created by the  
update to the non-visible row).  This bug dates all the way back to  
commit dafaa3ef, which added SSI.  
  
To fix, make sure that we check the xmin of concurrently inserted tuples  
that happen to also have been updated concurrently.

Previously we used pg_atomic_write_64_impl inside  
pg_atomic_init_u64. That works correctly, but on platforms without  
64bit single copy atomicity it could trigger spurious valgrind errors  
about uninitialized memory, because we use compare_and_swap for atomic  
writes on such platforms.  
  
I previously suppressed one instance of this problem (6c878edc1df),  
but as Tom reports that wasn't enough. As the atomic variable cannot  
yet be concurrently accessible during initialization, it seems better  
to have pg_atomic_init_64_impl set the value directly.  
  
Change pg_atomic_init_u32_impl for symmetry.

The repeat() function loops for potentially a long time without

Fix MSVC installations with multiple "configure" files detected

When installing binaries and libraries using the MSVC installation  
routines, the operation gets done after moving to the root folder, whose  
location is detected by checking if "configure" exists two times in a  
row.  So, calling the installation script from src/tools/msvc/ with an  
extra "configure" file four levels up the root path of the code tree  
causes the execution to go further up, leading to a failure in finding  
the builds.  This commit fixes the issue by moving to the root folder of  
the code tree only once, when necessary.

Fix bogus initialization of replication origin shared memory state.

The previous coding zeroed out offsetof(ReplicationStateCtl, states)  
more bytes than it was entitled to, as a consequence of starting the  
zeroing from the wrong pointer (or, if you prefer, using the wrong  
calculation of how much to zero).  
  
It's unsurprising that this has not caused any reported problems,  
since it can be expected that the newly-allocated block is at the end  
of what we've used in shared memory, and we always make the shmem  
block substantially bigger than minimally necessary.  Nonetheless,  
this is wrong and it could bite us someday; plus it's a dangerous  
model for somebody to copy.  
  
This dates back to the introduction of this code (commit 5aa235042),  
so back-patch to all supported branches.

Avoid killing btree items that are already dead

_bt_killitems marks btree items dead when a scan leaves the page where  
they live, but it does so with only share lock (to improve concurrency).  
This was historicall okay, since killing a dead item has no  
consequences.  However, with the advent of data checksums and  
wal_log_hints, this action incurs a WAL full-page-image record of the  
page.  Multiple concurrent processes would write the same page several  
times, leading to WAL bloat.  The probability of this happening can be  
reduced by only killing items if they're not already dead, so change the  
code to do that.  
  
The problem could eliminated completely by having _bt_killitems upgrade  
to exclusive lock upon seeing a killable item, but that would reduce  
concurrency so it's considered a cure worse than the disease.  
  
Backpatch all the way back to 9.5, since wal_log_hints was introduced in  
9.4.

Visual Studio 2015 and later versions should still be able to do the same  
as Visual Studio 2012, but the declaration of locale_name is missing in  
_locale_t, causing the code compilation to fail, hence this falls back  
instead on to enumerating all system locales by using EnumSystemLocalesEx  
to find the required locale name.  If the input argument is in Unix-style  
then we can get ISO Locale name directly by using GetLocaleInfoEx() with  
LCType as LOCALE_SNAME.  
  
In passing, change the documentation references of the now obsolete links.  
  
Note that this problem occurs only with NLS enabled builds.

The defect suppressed a Standby Status Update message when bytes flushed  
to disk had changed but bytes received had not changed.  If  
pg_recvlogical then exited with no intervening Standby Status Update,  
the next pg_recvlogical repeated already-flushed records.  The defect  
could also cause superfluous messages, which are functionally harmless.
