gcc version 4.6.1 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.1-9ubuntu3)

In the updated version of the patch, I got no warnings at the compile time.
But initdb failed because the OID which you assigned to pg_xlog_location_diff()
has already been used for other function. So you need to update pg_proc.h.

But another problem happened. When I changed pg_proc.h so that the unused
OID was assigned to pg_xlog_location_diff(), and executed the above again,
I encountered the segmentation fault:

LOG:  server process (PID 14384) was terminated by signal 11: Segmentation fault
DETAIL:  Failed process was running: SELECT
pg_xlog_location_diff('0/2000074', '0/2000074');
LOG:  terminating any other active server processes

ISTM that the cause is that int8_numeric() is executed for uint32 value. We
should use int4_numeric(), instead?

I'm OK with this.

-DATA(insert OID = 2288 ( pg_size_pretty                        PGNSP PGUID 12 
1 0 0 0 f f
f t f v 1 0 25 "20" _null_ _null_ _null_ _null_ pg_size_pretty _null_
_null_ _null_ ));
-DESCR("convert a long int to a human readable text using size units");
+DATA(insert OID = 3158 ( pg_size_pretty                        PGNSP PGUID 12 
1 0 0 0 f f
f t f v 1 0 25 "1700" _null_ _null_ _null_ _null_ pg_size_pretty
_null_ _null_ _null_ ));
+DESCR("convert a numeric to a human readable text using size units");

Why OID needs to be reassigned?
