The process names shown in pg_stat_activity.backend_type as of PG10 and
the process names used in the ps display are in some cases gratuitously
different, so here is a patch to make them more alike. Of course it
could be debated in some cases which spelling was better.

As an aside, is there a reason why the archiver process is not included
in pg_stat_activity?
