Yep. Here is the patch.

This patch distinguishes normal shutdown from unexpected exit, while the
server is in recovery. That is, when smart or fast shutdown is requested
during recovery, the bgwriter sets the ControlFile->state to new-introduced

When recovery starts from the DB_SHUTDOWNED_IN_RECOVERY state, the startup
process emits

    LOG:  database system was shut down in recovery at 2010-05-12 20:35:24 EDT

instead of

    LOG:  database system was interrupted while in recovery at log
time 2010-05-12 20:35:24 EDT
    HINT:  If this has occurred more than once some data might be
corrupted and you might need to choose an earlier recovery target.
