Retry DSM control segment creation if Windows indicates access denied.
Otherwise, attempts to run multiple postmasters running on the same
machine may fail, because Windows sometimes returns ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
rather than ERROR_ALREADY_EXISTS when there is an existing segment.
Hitting this bug is much more likely because of another defect not
fixed by this patch, namely that dsm_postmaster_startup() uses
random() which returns the same value every time. But that's not
a reason not to fix this.
