It is an entirely different error.

Chris' clog error was caused by a file read error. The file was
opened, we did a seek within the file and then the call to read()
failed to return a complete page from the file.

The xid shown is 22811359, which is the nextxid in the control file.

So StartupClog() must have failed trying to read the clog page from disk.

That isn't a Hot Standby problem, a recovery problem nor is it certain
its a PostgreSQL problem.

OTOH SlruPhysicalReadPage() does cope gracefully with missing clog
files during recovery, so maybe we can think of a way to make recovery
cope with a SLRU_READ_FAILED error gracefully also. Any ideas?
