Aside from measurement of the two sorting methods, I'd like to
point out that quorum commit basically doesn't need
sorting. Counting comforming santdbys while scanning the
walsender(receiver) LSN list comparing with the target LSN is
O(n). Small refactoring of SyncRerpGetOldestSyncRecPtr would
enough to do that.
