   Changed the comment, but I think it is better to use persistently
in line suggested by you, so I have done that way.

   Changed to ensure ErrorConfFile contains proper config file name.
   Note: I have not asssigned file name incase of error in below loop,
as file name in gconf is NULL in most cases and moreover this loops
            guc_variables which doesn't contain values/parameters from
auto.conf. So I don't think it is required to assign ErrorConfFile in
this loop.

ProcessConfigFile(GucContext context)
   for (i = 0; i < num_guc_variables; i++)
       struct config_generic *gconf = guc_variables[i];

   Removed the comment from top of function and modified the comment
where file is getting opened.

Yeah, but in case of emergency user can change it to get server
started. Now the question is whether to mention it in documentation, I
think we can leave this decision to committer. If he thinks that it is
better to document then I will update it.
