When using log shipping, checkpoint_segments always doesn't trigger a
checkpoint. So recovery after the standby crashes might take unexpectedly
long since redo starting point might be old.
But in file-based log shipping, since WAL files don't accumulate in
pg_xlog directory on the standby, even if the frequency of checkpoint
is very low, pg_xlog will not be filled with many WAL files. That
accumulation occurs only when using SR.
If we should avoid low frequency of checkpoint itself rather than
accumulation of WAL files, the bgwriter instead of the walreceiver
should check if we've consumed too much WAL, I think. Thought?
