Using MAX_XFN_CHARS instead of MAXFNAMELEN has a clear advantage
to reduce the size of the statistics file. Though I'm not sure how much this
change improve the performance of the statistics collector, basically
I'd like to
use MAX_XFN_CHARS here.

+                (errmsg("corrupted statistics file (global) \"%s\"",

I think that it's better to use the view name "pg_stat_bgwriter" instead of
internal name "global" here. The view name is easier-to-understand to a user.

+                (errmsg("corrupted statistics file (archiver)
\"%s\"", statfile)));

Same as above. What using "pg_stat_archiver" instead of just "archive"?

+    if (fread(&myArchiverStats, 1, sizeof(myArchiverStats),
+              fpin) != sizeof(myArchiverStats))
+    {
+        ereport(pgStatRunningInCollector ? LOG : WARNING,
+                (errmsg("corrupted statistics file \"%s\"", statfile)));

Same as above. Isn't it better to add something like
"pg_stat_archiver" even here?
