Hello, I noticed that a small optimization is possible in the flow of wait stat reporting for the LWLocks, when the pgstat_track_activities is disabled. If the check for pgstat_track_activities is done before invoking LWLockReportWaitStart() instead of inside the pgstat_report_wait_start(), it can save some of the statements execution where the end result of LWLockReportWaitStart() is a NO-OP because pgstat_track_activities = false.
I also see, that there are other callers of pgstat_report_wait_start() as well, which would also have to change to add a check for the pg_stat_activities, if the check is removed from the pgstat_report_wait_start(). Is the pg_stat_activities check inside pgstat_report_wait_start() because of some protocol being followed? Would it be worth making that change.
