Yes, this is good point and even I have thought of it before sending
the patch. The reason why it seems not good to duplicate the
message is that I am not aware even of single case where
tuple info (chid, relinfo) will not be available by the time it will come
to wait on tuple in new call (XactLockTableWaitExtended), do you think
there exists any such case or it's just based on apprehension.
If there exists any such, then isn't it better to use earlier version of
API for that call site as is case we have left for

If it's just apprehension, then I think it's better to have a check such
that if any of the tuple info is missing then don't add context and in
future if we have any such usecase then we can have multiple

I could not see any problem in the modifications done by you,
but if the function is generic enough that it doesn't assume what
caller has set info, then why to assume that opr_name will always
be filled.
