... and btw, either BecomeLockGroupMember() has got this backwards, or
I'm still fundamentally confused.
Also, after fixing that it would be good to add a comment explaining why
it's not fundamentally unsafe for BecomeLockGroupMember() to examine
leader->pgprocno without having any relevant lock. AFAICS, that's only
okay because the pgprocno fields are never changed after InitProcGlobal,
even when a PGPROC is recycled.
