pg_upgrade has always attempted to ensure that the transient dump files  
it creates are inaccessible except to the owner.  However, refactoring  
in commit 76a7650c4 broke that for the file containing "pg_dumpall -g"  
output; since then, that file was protected according to the process's  
default umask.  Since that file may contain role passwords (hopefully  
encrypted, but passwords nonetheless), this is a particularly unfortunate  
oversight.  Prudent users of pg_upgrade on multiuser systems would  
probably run it under a umask tight enough that the issue is moot, but  
perhaps some users are depending only on pg_upgrade's umask changes to  
protect their data.  
  
To fix this in a future-proof way, let's just tighten the umask at  
process start.  There are no files pg_upgrade needs to write at a  
weaker security level; and if there were, transiently relaxing the  
umask around where they're created would be a safer approach.  
  
Report and patch by Tom Lane; the idea for the fix is due to Noah Misch.  
Back-patch to all supported branches.

but it turns out that the test case doesn't reliably test for the  
bug, and in the context of the regression test suite did not because  
ANALYZE had not been run.

create_plan_recurse lacked any stack depth check.  This is not per  
our normal coding rules, but I'd supposed it was safe because earlier  
planner processing is more complex and presumably should eat more  
stack.  But bug #15033 from Andrew Grossman shows this isn't true,  
at least not for queries having the form of a many-thousand-way  
INTERSECT stack.  
  
Further testing showed that recurse_set_operations is also capable  
of being crashed in this way, since it likewise will recurse to the  
bottom of a parsetree before calling any support functions that  
might themselves contain any stack checks.  However, its stack  
consumption is only perhaps a third of create_plan_recurse's.  
  
It's possible that this particular problem with create_plan_recurse can  
only manifest in 9.6 and later, since before that we didn't build a Path  
tree for set operations.  But having seen this example, I now have no  
faith in the proposition that create_plan_recurse doesn't need a stack  
check, so back-patch to all supported branches.

If we're inside a lateral subquery, there may be no unparameterized paths  
for a particular child relation of an appendrel, in which case we *must*  
be able to create similarly-parameterized paths for each other child  
relation, else the planner will fail with "could not devise a query plan  
for the given query".  This means that there are situations where we'd  
better be able to reparameterize at least one path for each child.  
  
This calls into question the assumption in reparameterize_path() that  
it can just punt if it feels like it.  However, the only case that is  
known broken right now is where the child is itself an appendrel so that  
all its paths are AppendPaths.  (I think possibly I disregarded that in  
the original coding on the theory that nested appendrels would get folded  
together --- but that only happens *after* reparameterize_path(), so it's  
not excused from handling a child AppendPath.)  Given that this code's been  
like this since 9.3 when LATERAL was introduced, it seems likely we'd have  
heard of other cases by now if there were a larger problem.  
  
Per report from Elvis Pranskevichus.  Back-patch to 9.3.

Commit 28724fd90d2f85a0573a8107b48abad062a86d83 fixed things so that  
if a background worker fails to start due to fork() failure or because  
it is terminated before startup succeeds, BGWH_STOPPED will be  
reported.  However, that only helps if the code that uses the  
background worker machinery notices the change in status, and the code  
in parallel.c did not.  
  
To fix that, do two things.  First, make sure that when a worker  
exits, it triggers the leader to read from error queues.  That way, if  
a worker which has attached to an error queue exits uncleanly, the  
leader is sure to throw some error, either the contents of the  
ErrorResponse sent by the worker, or "lost connection to parallel  
worker" if it exited without sending one.  To cover the case where  
the worker never starts up in the first place or exits before  
attaching to the error queue, the ParallelContext now keeps track  
of which workers have sent at least one message via the error  
queue.  A worker which sends no messages by the time the parallel  
operation finishes will be checked to see whether it exited before  
attaching to the error queue; if so, a new error message, "parallel  
worker failed to initialize", will be reported.  If not, we'll  
continue to wait until it either starts up and exits cleanly, starts  
up and exits uncleanly, or fails to start, and then take the  
appropriate action.  
  
Patch by me, reviewed by Amit Kapila.

_tocEntryRequired() expects that it can identify ACL, SECURITY LABEL,  
and COMMENT TOC entries that are for large objects by seeing whether  
the tag for them starts with "LARGE OBJECT ".  While that works fine  
for actual large objects, which are indeed tagged that way, it's  
subject to false positives unless every such entry's tag starts with an  
appropriate type ID.  And in fact it does not work for ACLs, because  
up to now we customarily tagged those entries with just the bare name  
of the object.  This means that an ACL for an object named  
"LARGE OBJECT something" would be misclassified as data not schema,  
with undesirable results in a schema-only or data-only dump ---  
although pg_upgrade seems unaffected, due to the special case for  
binary-upgrade mode further down in _tocEntryRequired().  
  
We can fix this by changing all the dumpACL calls to use the label  
strings already in use for comments and security labels, which do  
follow the convention of starting with an object type indicator.  
  
Well, mostly they follow it.  dumpDatabase() got it wrong, using  
just the bare database name for those purposes, so that a database  
named "LARGE OBJECT something" would similarly be subject to having  
its comment or security label dropped or included when not wanted.  
Bring that into line too.  (Note that up to now, database ACLs have  
not been processed by pg_dump, so that this issue doesn't affect them.)  
  
_tocEntryRequired() itself is not free of fault: it was overly liberal  
about matching object tags to "LARGE OBJECT " in binary-upgrade mode.  
This looks like it is probably harmless because there would be no data  
component to strip anyway in that mode, but at best it's trouble  
waiting to happen, so tighten that up too.  
  
The possible misclassification of SECURITY LABEL entries for databases is  
in principle a security problem, but the opportunities for actual exploits  
seem too narrow to be interesting.  The other cases seem like just bugs,  
since an object owner can change its ACL or comment for himself, he needn't  
try to trick someone else into doing it by choosing a strange name.  
  
This has been broken since per-large-object TOC entries were introduced  
in 9.0, so back-patch to all supported branches.

For no apparent reason, this function was using a 16bit-wide inhseqno  
value, rather than the correct 32 bit width which is what is stored in  
the pg_inherits catalog.  This becomes evident if you try to create a  
table with more than 65535 parents, because this error appears:  
  
ERROR:  duplicate key value violates unique constraint «pg_inherits_relid_seqno_index»  
DETAIL:  Key (inhrelid, inhseqno)=(329371, 0) already exists.  
  
Needless to say, having so many parents is an uncommon situations, which

On Sparc64, use of __attribute__(aligned(8)) with __int128 causes faulty  
code generation in gcc versions at least through 5.5.0.  We can work around  
that by disabling use of __int128, so teach configure to test for the bug.  
  
This solution doesn't fix things for the case of cross-compiling with a  
buggy compiler; to support that nicely, we'd need to add a manual disable  
switch.  Unless more such cases turn up, it doesn't seem worth the work.  
Affected users could always edit pg_config.h manually.  
  
In passing, fix some typos in the existing configure test for __int128.  
They're harmless because we only compile that code not run it, but  
they're still confusing for anyone looking at it closely.  
  
This is needed in support of commit 751804998, so back-patch to 9.5  
as that was.

postgres_fdw: Avoid ‘outer pathkeys do not match mergeclauses’ error.

When pushing down a join to a foreign server, postgres_fdw constructs  
an alternative plan to be used for any EvalPlanQual rechecks that  
prove to be necessary.  This plan is stored as the outer subplan of  
the Foreign Scan implementing the pushed-down join.  Previously, this  
alternative plan could have a different nominal sort ordering than its  
parent, which seemed OK since there will only be one tuple per base  
table anyway in the case of an EvalPlanQual recheck.  Actually,  
though, it caused a problem if that path was used as a building block  
for the EvalPlanQual recheck plan of a higher-level foreign join,  
because we could end up with a merge join one of whose inputs was not  
labelled with the correct sort order.  Repair by injecting an extra  
Sort node into the EvalPlanQual recheck plan whenever it would  
otherwise fail to be sorted at least as well as its parent Foreign  
Scan.

Avoid unnecessary failure in SELECT concurrent with ALTER NO INHERIT.

If a query against an inheritance tree runs concurrently with an ALTER  
TABLE that's disinheriting one of the tree members, it's possible to get  
a "could not find inherited attribute" error because after obtaining lock  
on the removed member, make_inh_translation_list sees that its columns  
have attinhcount=0 and decides they aren't the columns it's looking for.  
  
An ideal fix, perhaps, would avoid including such a just-removed member  
table in the query at all; but there seems no way to accomplish that  
without adding expensive catalog rechecks or creating a likelihood of  
deadlocks.  Instead, let's just drop the check on attinhcount.  In this  
way, a query that's included a just-disinherited child will still  
succeed, which is not a completely unreasonable behavior.  
  
This problem has existed for a long time, so back-patch to all supported  
branches.  Also add an isolation test verifying related behaviors.  
  
Patch by me; the new isolation test is based on Kyotaro Horiguchi's work.

If we flatten a subquery whose target list contains constants or  
expressions, when those output columns are used in GROUPING SET columns,  
the planner was capable of doing the wrong thing by merging a pulled-up  
expression into the surrounding expression during const-simplification.  
Then the late processing that attempts to match subexpressions to grouping  
sets would fail to match those subexpressions to grouping sets, with the  
effect that they'd not go to null when expected.  
  
To fix, wrap such subquery outputs in PlaceHolderVars, ensuring that  
they preserve their separate identity throughout the planner's expression  
processing.  This is a bit of a band-aid, because the wrapper defeats  
const-simplification even in places where it would be safe to allow.  
But a nicer fix would likely be too invasive to back-patch, and the  
consequences of the missed optimizations probably aren't large in most  
cases.  
  
Back-patch to 9.5 where grouping sets were introduced.

~> (cube, int) operator was especially designed for knn-gist search.  
However, it appears that knn-gist search can't work correctly with current  
behavior of this operator when dataset contains cubes of variable  
dimensionality. In this case, the same value of second operator argument  
can point to different dimension depending on dimensionality of particular cube.  
Such behavior is incompatible with gist indexing of cubes, and knn-gist doesn't  
work correctly for it.  
  
This patch changes behavior of ~> (cube, int) operator by introducing dimension  
numbering where value of second argument unambiguously identifies number of  
dimension. With new behavior, this operator can be correctly supported by  
knn-gist. Relevant changes to cube operator class are also included.  
  
Backpatch to v9.6 where operator was introduced.  
  
Since behavior of ~> (cube, int) operator is changed, depending entities  
must be refreshed after upgrade. Such as, expression indexes using this  
operator must be reindexed, materialized views must be rebuilt, stored  
procedures and client code must be revised to correctly use new behavior.  
That should be mentioned in release notes.

These functions are stated to be Oracle-compatible, but they weren't.  
Yugo Nagata noticed that while our code returns zero for a zero or  
negative fourth parameter (occur_index), Oracle throws an error.  
Further testing by me showed that there was also a discrepancy in the  
interpretation of a negative third parameter (beg_index): Oracle thinks  
that a negative beg_index indicates the last place where the target  
substring can *begin*, whereas our code thinks it is the last place  
where the target can *end*.  
  
Adjust the sample code to behave like Oracle in both these respects.  
Also change it to be a CDATA[] section, simplifying copying-and-pasting  
out of the documentation source file.  And fix minor problems in the  
introductory comment, which wasn't very complete or accurate.  
  
Back-patch to all supported branches.  Although this patch only touches  
documentation, we should probably call it out as a bug fix in the next  
minor release notes, since users who have adopted the functions will  
likely want to update their versions.

It seems incorrect to assume that the list of CkptSortItems can never  
contain duplicate page numbers: concurrent activity could result in some  
page getting dropped from a low-numbered buffer and later loaded into a  
high-numbered buffer while BufferSync is scanning the buffer pool.  
If that happened, the comparator would give self-inconsistent results,  
potentially confusing qsort().  Saving one comparison step is not worth  
possibly getting the sort wrong.  
  
So far as I can tell, nothing would actually go wrong given our current  
implementation of qsort().  It might get a bit slower than expected  
if there were a large number of duplicates of one value, but that's  
surely a probability-epsilon case.  Still, the comment is wrong,  
and if we ever switched to another sort implementation it might be  
less forgiving.  
  
In passing, avoid casting away const-ness of the argument pointers;  
I've not seen any compiler complaints from that, but it seems likely  
that some compilers would not like it.  
  
Back-patch to 9.6 where this code came in, just in case I've underestimated  
the possible consequences.

Change some bogus PageGetLSN calls to BufferGetLSNAtomic

As src/backend/access/transam/README says, PageGetLSN may only be called  
by processes holding either exclusive lock on buffer, or a shared lock  
on buffer plus buffer header lock.  Therefore any place that only holds  
a shared buffer lock must use BufferGetLSNAtomic instead of PageGetLSN,  
which internally obtains buffer header lock prior to reading the LSN.  
  
A few callsites failed to comply with this rule.  This was detected by  
running all tests under a new (not committed) assertion that verifies  
PageGetLSN locking contract.  All but one of the callsites that failed  
the assertion are fixed by this patch.  Remaining callsites were  
inspected manually and determined not to need any change.  
  
The exception (unfixed callsite) is in TestForOldSnapshot, which only  
has a Page argument, making it impossible to access the corresponding  
Buffer from it.  Fixing that seems a much larger patch that will have to  
be done separately; and that's just as well, since it was only  
introduced in 9.6 and other bugs are much older.  
  
Some of these bugs are ancient; backpatch all the way back to 9.3.

Logical decoding's reorderbuffer.c may spill transaction files to disk  
when transactions are large.  These are supposed to be removed when they  
become "too old" by xid; but file removal requires the boundary LSNs of  
the transaction to be known.  The final_lsn is only set when we see the  
commit or abort record for the transaction, but nothing sets the value  
for transactions that crash, so the removal code misbehaves -- in  
assertion-enabled builds, it crashes by a failed assertion.  
  
To fix, modify the final_lsn of transactions that don't have a value  
set, to the LSN of the very latest change in the transaction.  This  
causes the spilled files to be removed appropriately.

XactLockTableWait assumed that its xid argument has already added itself  
to the lock table.  That assumption led to another assumption that if  
locking the xid has succeeded but the xid is reported as still in  
progress, then the input xid must have been a subtransaction.  
  
These assumptions hold true for the original uses of this code in  
locking related to on-disk tuples, but they break down in logical  
replication slot snapshot building -- in particular, when a standby  
snapshot logged contains an xid that's already in ProcArray but not yet  
in the lock table.  This leads to assertion failures that can be  
reproduced all the way back to 9.4, when logical decoding was  
introduced.  
  
To fix, change SubTransGetParent to SubTransGetTopmostTransaction which  
has a slightly different API: it returns the argument Xid if there is no  
parent, and it goes all the way to the top instead of moving up the  
levels one by one.  Also, to avoid busy-waiting, add a 1ms sleep to give  
the other process time to register itself in the lock table.  
  
For consistency, change ConditionalXactLockTableWait the same way.

Multiple sessions doing CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY simultaneously are  
supposed to be able to work in parallel, as evidenced by fixes in commit  
c3d09b3bd23f specifically to support this case.  In reality, one of the  
sessions would be aborted by a misterious "deadlock detected" error.  
  
Jeff Janes diagnosed that this is because of leftover snapshots used for  
system catalog scans -- this was broken by 8aa3e47510b9 keeping track of  
(registering) the catalog snapshot.  To fix the deadlocks, it's enough  
to de-register that snapshot prior to waiting.  
  
Backpatch to 9.4, which introduced MVCC catalog scans.  
  
Include an isolationtester spec that 8 out of 10 times reproduces the  
deadlock with the unpatched code for me (Álvaro).

Since 9.4, we've allowed the syntax "select union select" and variants  
of that.  However, the planner wasn't expecting a no-column set operation  
and ended up treating the set operation as if it were UNION ALL.  
  
Pre-v10, there seem to be some executor issues that would need to be  
fixed to support such cases, and it doesn't really seem worth expending  
much effort on.  Just disallow it, instead.

Previously an assertion failure occurred when pg_stop_backup() for  
non-exclusive backup was aborted while it's waiting for WAL files to  
be archived. This assertion failure happened in do_pg_abort_backup()  
which was called when a non-exclusive backup was canceled.  
do_pg_abort_backup() assumes that there is at least one non-exclusive  
backup running when it's called. But pg_stop_backup() can be canceled  
even after it marks the end of non-exclusive backup (e.g.,  
during waiting for WAL archiving). This broke the assumption that  
do_pg_abort_backup() relies on, and which caused an assertion failure.  
  
This commit changes do_pg_abort_backup() so that it does nothing  
when non-exclusive backup has been already marked as completed.  
That is, the asssumption is also changed, and do_pg_abort_backup()  
now can handle even the case where it's called when there is  
no running backup.  
  
Backpatch to 9.6 where SQL-callable non-exclusive backup was added.

The previous commit has shown that the sanity checks around freezing  
aren't strong enough. Strengthening them seems especially important  
because the existance of the bug has caused corruption that we don't  
want to make even worse during future vacuum cycles.  
  
The errors are emitted with ereport rather than elog, despite being  
"should never happen" messages, so a proper error code is emitted. To  
avoid superflous translations, mark messages as internal.

Previously it was possible that a tuple was not pruned during vacuum,  
even though its update xmax (i.e. the updating xid in a multixact with  
both key share lockers and an updater) was below the cutoff horizon.  
  
As the freezing code assumed, rightly so, that that's not supposed to  
happen, xmax would be preserved (as a member of a new multixact or  
xmax directly). That causes two problems: For one the tuple is below  
the xmin horizon, which can cause problems if the clog is truncated or  
once there's an xid wraparound. The bigger problem is that that will  
break HOT chains, which in turn can lead two to breakages: First,  
failing index lookups, which in turn can e.g lead to constraints being  
violated. Second, future hot prunes / vacuums can end up making  
invisible tuples visible again. There's other harmful scenarios.  
  
Fix the problem by recognizing that tuples can be DEAD instead of  
RECENTLY_DEAD, even if the multixactid has alive members, if the  
update_xid is below the xmin horizon. That's safe because newer  
versions of the tuple will contain the locking xids.  
  
A followup commit will harden the code somewhat against future similar  
bugs and already corrupted data.

The logical slots have a fast code path for sending data so as not to  
impose too high a per message overhead. The fast path skips checks for  
interrupts and timeouts. However, the existing coding failed to consider  
the fact that a transaction with a large number of changes may take a  
very long time to be processed and sent to the client. This causes the  
walsender to ignore interrupts for potentially a long time and more  
importantly it will result in the walsender being killed due to  
timeout at the end of such a transaction.  
  
This commit changes the fast path to also check for interrupts and only  
allows calling the fast path when the last keepalive check happened less  
than half the walsender timeout ago. Otherwise the slower code path will  
be taken.

I noticed that _SPI_execute_plan initially sets spierrcontext.arg = NULL,  
and only fills it in some time later.  If an error were to happen in  
between, _SPI_error_callback would try to dereference the null pointer.  
This is unlikely --- there's not much between those points except  
push-snapshot calls --- but it's clearly not impossible.  Tweak the  
callback to do nothing if the pointer isn't set yet.  
  
It's been like this for awhile, so back-patch to all supported branches.

Notably, this permits linking to the 32-bit Perl binaries advertised on  
perl.org, namely Strawberry Perl and ActivePerl.  This has a side effect  
of permitting linking to binaries built with obsolete MSVC versions.  
  
By default, MSVC 2012 and later require a "safe exception handler table"  
in each binary.  MinGW-built, 32-bit DLLs lack the relevant exception  
handler metadata, so linking to them failed with error LNK2026.  Restore  
the semantics of MSVC 2010, which omits the table from a given binary if  
some linker input lacks metadata.  This has no effect on 64-bit builds  
or on MSVC 2010 and earlier.  Back-patch to 9.3 (all supported  
versions).

MSVC-built, 32-bit Perl, but they broke use of MinGW-built, 32-bit Perl  
distributions like Strawberry Perl and modern ActivePerl.  Perl has no  
robust means to report whether it expects a -D_USE_32BIT_TIME_T ABI, so  
test this.  Back-patch to 9.3 (all supported versions).  
  
The chief alternative was a heuristic of adding -D_USE_32BIT_TIME_T when  
$Config{gccversion} is nonempty.  That banks on every gcc-built Perl  
using the same ABI.  gcc could change its default ABI the way MSVC once  
did, and one could build Perl with gcc and the non-default ABI.  
  
The GNU make build system could benefit from a similar test, without  
which it does not support MSVC-built Perl.  For now, just add a comment.  
Most users taking the special step of building Perl with MSVC probably  
build PostgreSQL with MSVC.

When a worker is flagged as BGW_NEVER_RESTART and we fail to start it,  
or if it is not marked BGW_NEVER_RESTART but is terminated before  
startup succeeds, what BgwHandleStatus should be reported?  The  
previous code really hadn't considered this possibility (as indicated  
by the comments which ignore it completely) and would typically return  
BGWH_NOT_YET_STARTED, but that's not a good answer, because then  
there's no way for code using GetBackgroundWorkerPid() to tell the  
difference between a worker that has not started but will start  
later and a worker that has not started and will never be started.  
So, when this case happens, return BGWH_STOPPED instead.  Update the  
comments to reflect this.  
  
The preceding fix by itself is insufficient to fix the problem,  
because the old code also didn't send a notification to the process  
identified in bgw_notify_pid when startup failed.  That might've  
been technically correct under the theory that the status of the  
worker was BGWH_NOT_YET_STARTED, because the status would indeed not  
change when the worker failed to start, but now that we're more  
usefully reporting BGWH_STOPPED, a notification is needed.  
  
Without these fixes, code which starts background workers and then  
uses the recommended APIs to wait for those background workers to  
start would hang indefinitely if the postmaster failed to fork a  
worker.

This patch fixes a couple of low-probability bugs that could lead to  
reporting an irrelevant errno value (and hence possibly a wrong SQLSTATE)  
concerning directory-open or file-open failures.  It also fixes places  
where we took shortcuts in reporting such errors, either by using elog  
instead of ereport or by using ereport but forgetting to specify an  
errcode.  And it eliminates a lot of just plain redundant error-handling  
code.  
  
In service of all this, export fd.c's formerly-static function  
ReadDirExtended, so that external callers can make use of the coding  
pattern  
  
	dir = AllocateDir(path);  
	while ((de = ReadDirExtended(dir, path, LOG)) != NULL)  
  
if they'd like to treat directory-open failures as mere LOG conditions  
rather than errors.  Also fix FreeDir to be a no-op if we reach it  
with dir == NULL, as such a coding pattern would cause.  
  
Then, remove code at many call sites that was throwing an error or log  
message for AllocateDir failure, as ReadDir or ReadDirExtended can handle  
that job just fine.  Aside from being a net code savings, this gets rid of  
a lot of not-quite-up-to-snuff reports, as mentioned above.  (In some  
places these changes result in replacing a custom error message such as  
"could not open tablespace directory" with more generic wording "could not  
open directory", but it was agreed that the custom wording buys little as  
long as we report the directory name.)  In some other call sites where we  
can't just remove code, change the error reports to be fully  
project-style-compliant.  
  
Also reorder code in restoreTwoPhaseData that was acquiring a lock  
between AllocateDir and ReadDir; in the unlikely but surely not  
impossible case that LWLockAcquire changes errno, AllocateDir failures  
would be misreported.  There is no great value in opening the directory  
before acquiring TwoPhaseStateLock, so just do it in the other order.  
  
Also fix CheckXLogRemoved to guarantee that it preserves errno,  
as quite a number of call sites are implicitly assuming.  (Again,  
it's unlikely but I think not impossible that errno could change  
during a SpinLockAcquire.  If so, this function was broken for its  
own purposes as well as breaking callers.)  
  
And change a few places that were using not-per-project-style messages,  
such as "could not read directory" when "could not open directory" is  
more correct.  
  
Back-patch the exporting of ReadDirExtended, in case we have occasion  
to back-patch some fix that makes use of it; it's not needed right now  
but surely making it global is pretty harmless.  Also back-patch the  
restoreTwoPhaseData and CheckXLogRemoved fixes.  The rest of this is  
essentially cosmetic and need not get back-patched.

rewriteTargetListUD's processing is dependent on the relkind of the query's  
target table.  That was fine at the time it was made to act that way, even  
for queries on inheritance trees, because all tables in an inheritance tree  
would necessarily be plain tables.  However, the 9.5 feature addition  
allowing some members of an inheritance tree to be foreign tables broke the  
assumption that rewriteTargetListUD's output tlist could be applied to all  
child tables with nothing more than column-number mapping.  This led to  
visible failures if foreign child tables had row-level triggers, and would  
also break in cases where child tables belonged to FDWs that used methods  
other than CTID for row identification.  
  
To fix, delay running rewriteTargetListUD until after the planner has  
expanded inheritance, so that it is applied separately to the (already  
mapped) tlist for each child table.  We can conveniently call it from  
preprocess_targetlist.  Refactor associated code slightly to avoid the  
need to heap_open the target relation multiple times during  
preprocess_targetlist.  (The APIs remain a bit ugly, particularly around  
the point of which steps scribble on parse->targetList and which don't.  
But avoiding such scribbling would require a change in FDW callback APIs,  
which is more pain than it's worth.)  
  
Also fix ExecModifyTable to ensure that "tupleid" is reset to NULL when  
we transition from rows providing a CTID to rows that don't.  (That's  
really an independent bug, but it manifests in much the same cases.)  
  
Add a regression test checking one manifestation of this problem, which  
was that row-level triggers on a foreign child table did not work right.  
  
Back-patch to 9.5 where the problem was introduced.

Originally, we palloc'd this buffer just barely big enough to hold the  
largest xlog record seen so far.  It turns out that that can result in  
valgrind complaints, because some compilers will emit code that assumes  
it can safely fetch padding bytes at the end of a struct, and those  
padding bytes were unallocated so far as aset.c was concerned.  We can  
fix that by MAXALIGN'ing the palloc request size, ensuring that it is big  
enough to include any possible padding that might've been omitted from  
the on-disk record.  
  
An additional objection to the original coding is that it could result in  
many repeated palloc cycles, in the worst case where we see a series of  
gradually larger xlog records.  We can ameliorate that cheaply by  
imposing a minimum buffer size that's large enough for most xlog records.  
BLCKSZ/2 was chosen after a bit of discussion.  
  
In passing, remove an obsolete comment in struct xl_heap_new_cid that the  
combocid field is free due to alignment considerations.  Perhaps that was  
true at some point, but it's not now.  
  
Back-patch to 9.5 where this code came in.

Traditionally IANA has distributed their timezone data in pure source  
form, replete with extensive historical comments.  As of release 2017c,  
they've added a compact single-file format that omits comments and  
abbreviates command keywords.  This form is way shorter than the pure  
source, even before considering its allegedly better compressibility.  
Hence, let's distribute the data in that form rather than pure source.  
  
I'm pushing this now, rather than at the next timezone database update,  
so that it's easy to confirm that this data file produces compiled zic  
output that's identical to what we were getting before.

hstoreUniquePairs() often called memcpy with equal source and destination  
pointers.  Although this is almost surely harmless in practice, it's  
undefined according to the letter of the C standard.  Some versions of  
valgrind will complain about it, and some versions of libc as well  
(cf. commit ad520ec4a).  Tweak the code to avoid doing that.

When nodeValuesscan.c was written, it was impossible to have a SubPlan in  
VALUES --- any sub-SELECT there would have to be uncorrelated and thereby  
would produce an InitPlan instead.  We therefore took a shortcut in the  
logic that throws away a ValuesScan's per-row expression evaluation data  
structures.  This was broken by the introduction of LATERAL however; a  
sub-SELECT containing a lateral reference produces a correlated SubPlan.  
  
The cleanest fix for this would be to give up the optimization of  
discarding the expression eval state.  But that still seems pretty  
unappetizing for long VALUES lists.  It seems to work to just prevent  
the subexpressions from hooking into the ValuesScan node's subPlan  
list, so let's do that and see how well it works.  (If this breaks,  
due to additional connections between the subexpressions and the outer  
query structures, we might consider compromises like throwing away data  
only for VALUES rows not containing SubPlans.)  
  
Per bug #14924 from Christian Duta.  Back-patch to 9.3 where LATERAL  
was introduced.

When strict aggregate combine functions, used in multi-stage/parallel  
aggregation, returned NULL, we didn't check for that, invoking the  
combine function with NULL the next round, despite it being strict.  
  
The equivalent code invoking normal transition functions has a check  
for that situation, which did not get copied in a7de3dc5c346. Fix the  
bug by adding the equivalent check.  
  
Based on a quick look I could not find any strict combine functions in  
core actually returning NULL, and it doesn't seem very likely external  
users have done so. So this isn't likely to have caused issues in  
practice.  
  
Add tests verifying transition / combine functions returning NULL is  
tested.

Previously, any attempt to request a 3.x protocol version other than  
3.0 would lead to a hard connection failure, which made the minor  
protocol version really no different from the major protocol version  
and precluded gentle protocol version breaks.  Instead, when the  
client requests a 3.x protocol version where x is greater than 0, send  
the new NegotiateProtocolVersion message to convey that we support  
only 3.0.  This makes it possible to introduce new minor protocol  
versions without requiring a connection retry when the server is  
older.  
  
In addition, if the startup packet includes name/value pairs where  
the name starts with "_pq_.", assume that those are protocol options,  
not GUCs.  Include those we don't support (i.e. all of them, at  
present) in the NegotiateProtocolVersion message so that the client  
knows they were not understood.  This makes it possible for the  
client to request previously-unsupported features without bumping  
the protocol version at all; the client can tell from the server's  
response whether the option was understood.  
  
It will take some time before servers that support these new  
facilities become common in the wild; to speed things up and make  
things easier for a future 3.1 protocol version, back-patch to all  
supported releases.

Treat it as a simple pointer to avoid that; this is more consistent  
with comparable code elsewhere, anyway.

The scripts in contrib/start-scripts/osx don't work at all on macOS  
10.10 (Yosemite) or later, because they depend on SystemStarter which  
Apple deprecated long ago and removed in 10.10.  Add a new subdirectory  
contrib/start-scripts/macos with scripts that use the newer launchd

The pending list must (for correctness) always be cleaned up by vacuum, and  
should (for the avoidance of surprising behavior) always be cleaned up  
by an explicit call to gin_clean_pending_list, but cleanup is optional  
when inserting.  The old logic got this backward: cleanup was forced  
if (stats == NULL), but that's going to be *false* when vacuuming and  
*true* for inserts.

Prevent int128 from requiring more than MAXALIGN alignment.

Our initial work with int128 neglected alignment considerations, an  
oversight that came back to bite us in bug #14897 from Vincent Lachenal.  
It is unsurprising that int128 might have a 16-byte alignment requirement;  
what's slightly more surprising is that even notoriously lax Intel chips  
sometimes enforce that.  
  
Raising MAXALIGN seems out of the question: the costs in wasted disk and  
memory space would be significant, and there would also be an on-disk  
compatibility break.  Nor does it seem very practical to try to allow some  
data structures to have more-than-MAXALIGN alignment requirement, as we'd  
have to push knowledge of that throughout various code that copies data  
structures around.  
  
The only way out of the box is to make type int128 conform to the system's  
alignment assumptions.  Fortunately, gcc supports that via its  
__attribute__(aligned()) pragma; and since we don't currently support  
int128 on non-gcc-workalike compilers, we shouldn't be losing any platform  
support this way.  
  
Although we could have just done pg_attribute_aligned(MAXIMUM_ALIGNOF) and  
called it a day, I did a little bit of extra work to make the code more  
portable than that: it will also support int128 on compilers without  
__attribute__(aligned()), if the native alignment of their 128-bit-int  
type is no more than that of int64.  
  
Add a regression test case that exercises the one known instance of the  
problem, in parallel aggregation over a bigint column.  
  
Back-patch of commit 751804998.  The code known to be affected only exists  
in 9.6 and later, but we do have some stuff using int128 in 9.5, so patch  
back to 9.5.

Generalize section 1 to handle stuff that is principally about the  
compiler (not libraries), such as attributes, and collect stuff there  
that had been dropped into various other parts of c.h.  Also, push  
all the gettext macros into section 8, so that section 0 is really  
just inclusions rather than inclusions and random other stuff.  
  
The primary goal here is to get pg_attribute_aligned() defined before  
section 3, so that we can use it with int128.  But this seems like good  
cleanup anyway.  
  
This patch just moves macro definitions around, and shouldn't result  
in any changes in generated code.

Apart from calling write_stderr() on failure, the handler depends on no

When a value contained an XML declaration naming some other encoding,  
this function interpreted UTF8 bytes as the named encoding, yielding  
mojibake.  xml_parse() already has similar logic.  This would be

behavior there until the xpath facility can support such databases  
comprehensively.  Back-patch to 9.3 (all supported versions).

Upon further review, our Bonjour code doesn't actually work with the  
Avahi not-too-compatible compatibility library.  While you can get it  
to work on non-macOS platforms if you link to Apple's own mDNSResponder  
code, there don't seem to be many people who care about that.  Leaving in  
the AC_SEARCH_LIBS call seems more likely to encourage people to build  
broken configurations than to do anything very useful.  
  
Hence, remove the AC_SEARCH_LIBS call and put in a warning comment instead.

The point of having separate ResourceOwnerEnlargeFoo and  
ResourceOwnerRememberFoo functions is so that resource allocation  
can happen in between.  Doing it in some other order is just wrong.  
  
OpenTemporaryFile() did open(), enlarge, remember, which would leak the  
open file if the enlarge step ran out of memory.  Because fd.c has its own  
layer of resource-remembering, the consequences look like they'd be limited  
to an intratransaction FD leak, but it's still not good.  
  
IncrBufferRefCount() did enlarge, remember, incr-refcount, which would blow  
up if the incr-refcount step ever failed.  It was safe enough when written,  
but since the introduction of PrivateRefCountHash, I think the assumption  
that no error could happen there is pretty shaky.  
  
The odds of real problems from either bug are probably small, but still,  
back-patch to supported branches.
