Remove latch.c workaround for Linux < 2.6.27. Commit 82ebbeb0 added a workaround for systems with no epoll_create1() and EPOLL_CLOEXEC. Linux < 2.6.27 and glibc < 2.9 are long gone. Now seems like a good time to drop the extra code, because otherwise we'd have to add similar already-dead workaround code to new patches using XXX_CLOEXEC flags that arrived in the same kernel release.

Optimize latches to send fewer signals. Don't send signals to processes that aren't sleeping.

Use SIGURG rather than SIGUSR1 for latches. Traditionally, SIGUSR1 has been overloaded for ad-hoc signals, procsignal.c signals and latch.c wakeups. Move that last use over to a new dedicated signal. SIGURG is normally used to report out-of-band socket data, but PostgreSQL doesn't use that facility. The signal handler is now installed in all postmaster children by InitializeLatchSupport(). Those wishing to disconnect from it should call ShutdownLatchSupport(). Future patches will use this separation of signals to avoid the need for a signal handler on some operating systems.

Update the docs and comments for decoding of prepared xacts. Commit a271a1b50e introduced decoding at prepare time in ReorderBuffer. This can lead to deadlock for out-of-core logical replication solutions that uses this feature to build distributed 2PC in case such transactions lock [user] catalog tables exclusively. They need to inform users to not have locks on catalog tables (via explicit LOCK command) in such transactions.

Avoid repeated decoding of prepared transactions after a restart. In commit a271a1b50e, we allowed decoding at prepare time and the prepare was decoded again if there is a restart after decoding it. It was done that way because we can't distinguish between the cases where we have not decoded the prepare because it was prior to consistent snapshot or we have decoded it earlier but restarted. To distinguish between these two cases, we have introduced an initial_consistent_point at the slot level which is an LSN at which we found a consistent point at the time of slot creation. This is also the point where we have exported a snapshot for the initial copy. So, prepare transaction prior to this point are sent along with commit prepared. This commit bumps SNAPBUILD_VERSION because of change in SnapBuild. It will break existing slots which is fine in a major release.

Add option to enable two_phase commits via pg_create_logical_replication_slot. Commit 0aa8a01d04 extends the output plugin API to allow decoding of prepared xacts and allowed the user to enable/disable the two-phase option via pg_logical_slot_get_changes(). This can lead to a problem such that the first time when it gets changes via pg_logical_slot_get_changes() without two_phase option enabled it will not get the prepared even though prepare is after consistent snapshot. Now next time during getting changes, if the two_phase option is enabled it can skip prepare because by that time start decoding point has been moved. So the user will only get commit prepared. Allow to enable/disable this option at the create slot time and default will be false. It will break the existing slots which is fine in a major release.

Fix semantics of regular expression back-references. POSIX defines the
behavior of back-references thus: The back-reference expression '\n'
shall match the same (possibly empty) string of characters as was matched
by a subexpression enclosed between "(" and ")" preceding the '\n'. As
far as I can see, the back-reference is supposed to consider only the data
characters matched by the referenced subexpression. However, because our
engine copies the NFA constructed from the referenced subexpression, it
effectively enforces any constraints therein, too. As an example, '(^.)\1'
ought to match 'xx', or any other string starting with two occurrences of the
same character; but in our code it does not, and indeed can't match anything,
because the '^' anchor constraint is included in the backref's copied NFA. If
POSIX intended that, you'd think they'd mention it. Perl for one doesn't act
that way, so it's hard to conclude that this isn't a bug. Fix by modifying
the backref's NFA immediately after it's copied from the reference, replacing
all constraint arcs by EMPTY arcs so that the constraints are treated as
automatically satisfied. This still allows us to enforce matching rules that
depend only on the data characters; for example, in
'(^\d+).*\1' the NFA
matching step will still know that the backref can only match strings of
digits. Perhaps surprisingly, this change does not affect the results of any
of a rather large corpus of real-world regexes. Nonetheless, I would not
consider back-patching it, since it's a clear compatibility break. Patch by
me, reviewed by Joel Jacobson Discussion:
Improve performance of regular expression back-references. In some cases, at the time that we're doing an NFA-based precheck of whether a backref subexpression can match at a particular place in the string, we already know which substring the referenced subexpression matched. If so, we might as well forget about the NFA and just compare the substring; this is faster and it gives an exact rather than approximate answer. In general, this optimization can help while we are prechecking within the second child expression of a concat node, while the capture was within the first child expression; then the substring was saved during cdissect() of the first child and will be available to NFA checks done while cdissect() recurses into the second child. It can help quite a lot if the tree looks like concat / \ capture concat / \ expensive stuff backref as we will be able to avoid recursively dissecting the "expensive stuff" before discovering that the backref isn't satisfied with a particular midpoint that the lower concat node is testing. This doesn't help if the concat tree is left-deep, as the capture node won't get set soon enough (and it's hard to fix that without changing the engine's match behavior). Fortunately, right-deep concat trees are the common case. Patch by me, reviewed by Joel Jacobson Discussion: https://firstname.lastname@example.org https://git.postgresql.org/pg/commitdiff/0c3405cf11a12da1a4278c6833f4d979fe06c866
Suppress unnecessary regex subre nodes in a couple more cases. This extends the changes made in commit cebc1d34e, teaching parseqatom() to generate fewer or cheaper subre nodes in some edge cases. The case of interest here is a quantified atom that is "messy" only because it has greediness opposite to what preceded it (whereas captures and backrefs are intrinsically messy). In this case we don't need an iteration node, since we don't care where the sub-matches of the quantifier are; and we might also not need a second concatenation node. This seems of only marginal real-world use according to my testing, but I wanted to get it in before wrapping up this series of regex performance fixes.

Mark default_transaction_read_only as GUC_REPORT. This allows clients to find out the setting at connection time without having to expend a query round trip to do so; which is helpful when trying to identify read/write servers. (One must also look at in_hot_standby, but that's already GUC_REPORT, cf bf8a662c9.) Modifying libpq to make use of this will come soon, but I felt it cleaner to push the server change separately.

Extend the abilities of libpq's target_session_attrs parameter. In addition to the existing options of "any" and "read-write", we now support "read-only", "primary", "standby", and "prefer-standby". "read-write" retains its previous meaning of "transactions are read-write by default", and "read-only" inverts that. The other three modes test specifically for hot-standby status, which is not quite the same thing. (Setting default_transaction_read_only on a primary server renders it read-only to this logic, but not a standby.) Furthermore, if talking to a v14 or later server, no extra network round trip is needed to detect the session's status; the GUC_REPORT variables delivered by the server are enough. When talking to an older server, a SHOW or SELECT query is issued to detect session read-only-ness or server hot-standby state, as needed.

pgbench: Simplify some port, host, user and dbname assignments.

Remove server and libpq support for old FE/BE protocol version 2. Protocol version 3 was introduced in PostgreSQL 7.4. There shouldn't be many clients or servers left out there without version 3 support. But as a courtesy, I kept just enough of the old protocol support that we can still send the "unsupported protocol version" error in v2 format, so that old clients can display the message properly. Likewise, libpq still understands v2 ErrorResponse messages when establishing a connection. The impetus to do this now is that I'm working on a patch to COPY FROM, to always prefetch some data. We cannot do that safely with the old protocol, because it requires parsing the input one byte at a time to detect the end-of-copy marker. Reviewed-by: Tom Lane, Alvaro Herrera, John Naylor Discussion: https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/9ec25819-0a8a-d51a-17dc-4150bb3cca3b%40iki.fi https://git.postgresql.org/pg/commitdiff/3174d69fb96a66173224e60ec7053b988d5ed4d9
Avoid extra newline in errors received in FE protocol version 2. Contrary to what the comment said, the postmaster does in fact end all its messages in a newline, since server version 7.2. Be tidy and don't add an extra newline if the error message already has one.
