Thanks Iwata-san. I was just trying to apply the patch but it failed so
the new status is fine. On top of taking care of the rebase, please
make sure of the following:
- Calling pg_ls_dir_files() with missing_ok set to true.
- Renaming pg_ls_archive_status to pg_ls_archive_statusdir.
We have a pretty nice consistency in the name of such functions as they
finish by *dir, so it makes lookups using for example "\df *dir" easier
to spot all the functions in the same category.

+ last modified time (mtime) of each file in the write ahead log (WAL)
+ <literal>archive_status</literal> directory. By default only superusers
Here I would mention pg_wal/archive_status.

No need for a catalog bump in what you submit on this thread, this is
taken care by committers.
