PFA a patch to fix the problem using this approach.
I also added isolation tester regression tests. The failure is simulated using
a pg_cancel_backend() on top of pg_stat_activity, using filters on a
specifically set application name and the query text to avoid any unwanted
interaction. I also added a 1s locking delay, to ensure that even slow/CCA
machines can consistently reproduce the failure. Maybe that's not enough, or
maybe testing this scenario is not worth the extra time.
