Yes, there is a possibility that a new backend may start in standby
after we kill the conflicting backends. If the new backend has pin on
the buffer which the startup process is trying to read then
'IsBufferCleanupOK' will fail thereby causing a startup process to

No, the reason being we are trying to allocate a new bucket page on
standby so there can't be any backend which could have pin on a page
that is yet to initialised.

Added. Please check the attached v9 patch.
