Hm.  I was assuming that we could probably get away with the
static-buffer trick, but if you think not ...

One possibility is to make call sites that need this pass local-variable
buffers to the formatting subroutine:

	char	xrp_buffer[XLOGRECPTR_BUF_LEN];
	char	xrp_buffer2[XLOGRECPTR_BUF_LEN];

		format_xlogrecptr(xrp_buffer, xlogval1),
		format_xlogrecptr(xrp_buffer2, xlogval2));

but it may not be worth the trouble.
