I had a look that patch.
I'm planning to have at least following tests for multiple synchronous

* Confirm value of pg_stat_replication.sync_state (sync, async or potential)
* Confirm that the data is synchronously replicated to multiple
standbys in same cases.
  * case 1 : The standby which is not listed in s_s_name, is down
  * case 2 : The standby which is listed in s_s_names but potential
standby, is down
  * case 3 : The standby which is considered as sync standby, is down.
* Standby promotion

In order to confirm that the commit isn't done in case #3 forever
unless new sync standby is up, I think we need the framework that
cancels executing query.
That is, what I'm planning is,

1. Set up master server (s_s_name = '2, standby1, standby2)
2. Set up two standby servers
3. Standby1 is down
4. Create some contents on master (But transaction is not committed)
5. Cancel the #4 query. (Also confirm that the flush location of only
standby2 makes progress)
