There are functions pg_stat_get_backend_client_addr and
pg_stat_get_backend_client_port, which are exposed through the
pg_stat_activity view, but there is no straightforward way to get the
server-side address and port of a connection. This is obviously much
less commonly needed than the client information, but it's still
sometimes useful on hosts with many IP addresses.

I suggest that we add the functions pg_stat_get_backend_server_addr and
pg_stat_get_backend_server_port, but don't expose them in
pg_stat_activity. (_server_port is really mostly for symmetry, because
you can't currently bind to multiple ports.)

Patch attached. Comments?
