I'm not sure if it's good idea to call the feature which you'd like to
add as 'flush mode'.
ISTM that 'flush mode' is vague and confusion for users. Instead, what
about adding
something like --fsync-interval which pg_recvlogical supports?

+ * Receive a message available from XLOG stream, blocking for
+ * maximum of 'timeout' ms.

The above comment seems incorrect because 'timeout' is boolean argument.

+            FD_ZERO(&input_mask);
+            FD_SET(PQsocket(conn), &input_mask);
+            if (standby_message_timeout)

Why did you get rid of the check of 'still_sending' flag here? Originally the
flag was checked but not in the patch.

+        r = rcv_receive(true , &copybuf, conn,
standby_message_timeout, last_status, now);

When the return value is -2 (i.e., an error happend), we should go to
the 'error' label.

ISTM that stream_stop() should be called every time a message is
processed. But the
patch changes pg_receivexlog so that it keeps processing the received
data without
calling stream_stop(). This seems incorrect.

'copybuf' needs to be free'd every time new message is received. But you seem to
have forgotten to do that when rcv_receive() with no timeout is called.
