In C, "NULL" denotes a special pointer value indicating the pointer
points to no value. "NUL" is the ASCII character that terminates a C
string. These two terms are not synonymous, so this patch corrects the
usage of NULL in comments in the postgres source.

I may have missed an instance or two, but this gets most of the
mistakes, I believe.
