There are few typos which I have tried to fix with the attached patch. Can
you tell me what was wrong with the way it was done in patch?

AbortSubTransaction() does call pgstat_report_wait_end() twice, is this
intentional? I have kept it in the end because there is a chance that in
between API's can again set the state to wait and also by that time we have
not released buffer pins and heavyweight locks, so not sure if it makes
sense to report wait end at that stage. I have noticed that in
WaitOnLock(), on error the wait end is set, but now again thinking on it,
it seems it will be better to set it in
AbortTransaction/AbortSubTransaction at end. What do you think?
