Something I've repeatedly wondered about around this topic is whether we
could split ProcArrayLock into one that governs entering or leaving the
procarray from the one that's for consistent snapshots.  I think there's
no need for ProcArrayAdd/ProcArrayRemove/CountDBBackends()/CancelDBBackends()/
CountUserBackends()/CountOtherDBBackends() (and potentially some more)
to conflict with GetSnapshotData()/ProcArrayEndTransaction()/
as long as we're careful to ensure that by the time a entry is removed
ProcArrayEndTransaction() has been called.
