To be more precise, it would prevent an out of shared memory error
during an attempt to register an xid for an active serializable
transaction. That seems like a good thing. Patch to remove the
hint and initially allocate that HTAB at full size attached.
I didn't attempt to address the larger general issue of one HTAB
stealing shared memory from space calculated to belong to another,
and then holding on to it until the postmaster is shut down.
