The attached v2 tries to make the socketdir more like the other configurable
directories in pg_upgrade (adding an envvar for it etc). Is that more in line
with what you were suggesting? make -C src/bin/pg_upgrade check passes with
this, both unmodified and with a -s in the test script to override it. Also
fixed incorrect syntax in the docs part from v1.
