Just read downthread that you want to commit this soon. Please hold of
for a while, this doesn't really look ready to me. I don't have time for
a real review right now, but I'll try to get to it asap.

logical_read_local_xlog_page isn't really suitable for the use
here. Besides the naming issue, at the very least it'll be wrong during
WAL replay in the presence of promotions on an upstream node - it
doesn't dealwith timelines.

More generally, I'm doubtful that the approach of reading data from WAL
as proposed here is a very good idea. It seems better to "just" dump the
entire 2pc state into *one* file at checkpoint time.
