I have finally worked it out. Now there is a common version of
guc-file.l and guc-file.c is built separately from guc.c. I had to use a
limited number of #ifndef FRONTEND, mostly to replace erreport calls.
Also, ProcessConfigFile and ProcessConfigFileInternal have been moved
inside guc.c explicitly as being a backend specific. So for me this
solution looks much more concise and neat.

Please, find the new version of patch attached. Tap tests have been
updated as well in order to handle both command line and postgresql.conf
specified restore_command.
