Thank you for working on this. This patch would be helpful for
synchronous replication.

I haven't looked at the code deeply yet, but I've reviewed the v6
patch set especially on subscriber side. All of the patches can be
applied to current HEAD cleanly. Here is review comment.

CREATE SUBSCRIPTION commands accept work_mem < 64 but it leads ERROR
on publisher side when starting replication. Probably we should check
the value on the subscriber side as well.

When streaming = on, if we drop subscription in the middle of
receiving stream changes, DROP SUBSCRIPTION could leak tmp files
(.chages file and .subxacts file). Also it also happens when a
transaction on upstream aborted without abort record.

Since we can change both streaming option and work_mem option by ALTER
SUBSCRIPTION, documentation of ALTER SUBSCRIPTION needs to be updated.

If we create a subscription without any options, both
pg_subscription.substream and pg_subscription.subworkmem are set to
null. However, since GetSubscription are't aware of NULL we start the
replication with invalid options like follows.
LOG:  received replication command: START_REPLICATION SLOT "hoge_sub"
LOGICAL 0/0 (proto_version '2', work_mem '893219954', streaming 'on',
publication_names '"hoge_pub"')

I think we can set substream to false and subworkmem to -1 instead of
null, and then makes libpqrcv_startstreaming not set streaming option
if stream is -1.

Some WARNING messages appeared. Maybe these are for debug purpose?
