The comment still refers to the checkpoint_update_limit.

I would personally find this very annoying. If I read it correctly,
anybody with a database with no problem at all but that has
log_checkpoints on suddenly got at least 10 times as many messages? I
generally try to advise my clients to *not* log excessively because
then they will end up not bothering to read the logs...
