I've tested this some more and am much happier with it now.
Also added README details; there are no user interface or behaviour
The patch removes the need for RecordSubTransactionCommit() which
* reduces response times of subtransaction queries because we are able
to apply these changes in batches at commit time. This requires a
batch-style API that now works atomically, so there is much change in
* reduces the path length for visibility tests for all users viewing
concurrent subtransaction activity since we are much less likely to
waste time following a long trail to an uncommitted higher-level
* removes the need for additional WAL logging to implement
subtransaction commits for Hot Standby
So half the patch is refactoring, half rearranging of clog access
functions to support batched-access.
An early review would greatly help my work on Hot Standby. Thanks.
