While looking into the backup and recovery code, I found small documentation bugs.
The documatation says that the backup history files can be requested for recovery,
but it's not used by the system and not requested anymore since PG 9.0
(commit 06f82b29616cd9effcaefd99c6b6e2e80697482f) and never be requested.

Attached patch (doc_backup_history_file.patch) corrects the description about this.

In addition, the current pg_standby still can handle a backup history file that are
never requested. It is harmless but unnecessary code. Another attached patch
(pg_standby.patch) removes this part of code.
