Thanks for doing that!

I've tested that on a new git clone and with the `emacs -q` command so
as not to load any of my local setup. While the indentation seemed ok,
the placement of the comments seems way off:
Compare what you see using those commands:
emacs -q src/backend/commands/extension.c
emacs -q -l ../emacs.samples src/backend/commands/extension.c
(When using macosx, you might have to replace the 'emacs' binary
location with /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs).
I did also test on doc/src/sgml/extend.sgml and some Makefile, only with
using the emacs.samples file content though.

A couple of notes about your emacs.sample file:
- Name the lambda used in the hook for easier removing / reference
- A fresh git clone will create a directory named postgres, so I did
change your /postgresql/ regex to /postgres/ in my attached version
