Yes, we already have it, but if server reboots between commit prepared (all
prepared state is gone) and decoding of this commit prepared then we loose
that mapping, isn’t it?

Agree, that is problem. That allows to decode this PREPARE, but after that
it is better to mark this transaction as running in snapshot or perform prepare
decoding with some kind of copied-end-edited snapshot. I’ll have a look at this.
