No, because we're *asleep*. You'd have to add an additional
timeout-interrupt reason. Plus there's a ton of interesting questions
about what's safe to do from an interrupt service routine.
In fact, I am scandalized to see that someone has inserted a boatload
of elog calls into CheckDeadLock since 8.2 --- that seems entirely
unsafe. [ checks revision history... ]

* doc/src/sgml/config.sgml, src/backend/storage/lmgr/deadlock.c,
src/include/storage/lock.h, src/include/storage/proc.h: Add GUC
log_lock_waits to log long wait times.
Bruce, Simon, kindly fix this or revert it.
