Got another problem: when I ran pg_stop_backup to take an online backup,
it got stuck until I had generated new WAL record. This happens because,
in the patch, when pg_stop_backup forces a switch to new WAL file, old
WAL file is not marked as archivable until next new WAL record has been
inserted, but pg_stop_backup keeps waiting for that WAL file to be archived.
OTOH, without the patch, WAL file is marked as archivable as soon as WAL
file switch occurs.

So, in short, the patch seems to handle the WAL file switch logic incorrectly.
