FWIW I agree that. > It seems better to do the log_smgrcreate() for RELPERSISTENCE_PERMANENT, > not just INIT_FORKNUM. What do you guys think? What it is doing seems to me reasonable but copying_initfork doesn't seems to be necessary. Kicking both of log_newpage() and smgrimmedsync() by use_wal, which has the value considering INIT_FORKNUM would be more descriptive.
