PostgreSQL is single-threaded, multi-processing. So if you need to set
this flag only within a given backend, just make it a global variable.
If you want it to be global across all back-ends, you may want a GUC
(see the docs & source code). However, IIRC GUC changes aren't visible
to all backends immediately.
If you need something that's immediately visible, I imagine you'll want
a lock or mutex.
