Eventually I found out that it's good to have a separate structure for the
read position because walsender calls the XLogRead() function directly, not
via the XLOG reader. Currently the structure name is XLogSegment (maybe
someone can propose better name) and it's a member of XLogReaderState. No
field of the new structure is duplicated now.

The next version of the patch is attached.
