Makes sense and attached patch implements it using new named
tranches facility.  One thing to note is that to make it work on
EXEC_BACKEND builds, I have passed the individual LWLock
array via save-restore backendparams mechanism.  Now instead
we could have initialised the LWLock arrays in each backend at
start-up and I have tried to analyse that way as well, but we need
to use NamedLWLockTrancheArray instead of
NamedLWLockTrancheRequestArray in GetNamedLWLockTranche()
and not only that, we also need to store number of locks
information in NamedLWLockTrancheArray as well.  So it seems
it is better to use save-restore backendparams mechanism for
passing LWLock arrays.

Agreed and we don't even need an array of LWLockCounter's, just one
counter is sufficient for tranches.  Apart from this function
LWLockAssign() seems redundant to me after new implementation
of named tranches, so I have removed that as well.
