Sure, attached, and it would be applied only to head, where you change
pg_controldata. pg_upgrade has to read the old and new cluster's
pg_controldata. We could get more sophisticated by checking the catalog
version number where the format was changed, but that doesn't seem worth
it, and is overly complex because we get the catalog version number from
pg_controldata, so you would be adding a dependency in ordering of the
I can test all suppored Postgres versions with pg_upgrade once you apply
the patch, but I think it will be fine.
