It means the latest checkpoint record in the WAL log has the shutdown bit
set, implying that there was an intentional shutdown.  This should be
redundant with the control-file-state-field info that's reported a line
or two earlier --- but I suppose it would be interesting for debugging
if it didn't agree.

Feel free to change the message wording...
