So apparently, pg_upgrade needs the existing behavior, so making the
idempotent option the only behavior won't work. Therefore, I think this
patch is still useful as originally presented. I've made one change
that pg_ctl won't print any messages if the -I option is used and the
server is already started/stopped.
