xact.c calls RecreateTwoPhaseFile in xact_redo() function (xact.c:5596)

One concern that come into my mind while reading updated
patch is about creating extra bool field in GlobalTransactionData structure. 
While this improves readability, it
also increases size of that structure and that size have impact on performance 
on systems with many cores
(say like 60-80). Probably one byte will not make measurable difference, but I 
think it is good idea to keep
GXact as small as possible. As far as I understand the same logic was behind 
split of 
PGPROC to PGPROC+PGXACT in 9.2 (comment in proc.h:166)
