That's on purpose. volatile is only necessary for variables which are either 
accessed from within signal handlers or which live in shared memory. Neither is 
true for ClientConnectionLostPending, so non-volatile should be fine.

Yeah, further testing is on my todo list. The interesting case is probably what 
happens if the connection is dropped while there's already a cancellation 
request pending. And also the other way around - a cancellation request 
arriving after we've already discovered that the connection is gone.

You just need to click "Edit Patch" and put your name into the Reviewer field. 
You do need a postgres community account to edit patches, but the signup 
process is quite quick and painless AFAIR.
