Ugh. When I changed pg_resetwal.c to print out the 64 bit value, I
broke controldata.c's code that reads those strings back in, as
revealed by a failing pg_upgrade test in check-world that I should
have waited for. Perhaps we shouldn't change that output format...
though I think it does make sense to move forwards here (and probably
eventually for the other values too). So here is a version that fixes
the parsing problem. Unfortunately pg_upgrade is not allowed to use
pg_strtouint64() so for now I jammed the same macrology into
controldata.c, but I assume that could be sorted out.
