OK, I committed this, with a few tweaks.  In particular, I added a
flag variable instead of relying on "latch set" == "need to send
reply"; the other changes were cosmetic.

I'm not sure how much more of this we can realistically get into 9.6;
the latter patches haven't had much review yet.  But I'll set this
back to Needs Review in the CommitFest and we'll see where we end up.
But even if we don't get anything more than this, it's still rather
nice: remote_apply turns out to be only slightly slower than remote
flush, and it's a guarantee that a lot of people are looking for.
