Well, as noted before, not every background worker failure leads to a
crash-and-restart; for example, a non-shmem-connected worker or one
that exits with status 1 will set rw_crashed_at but will not cause a
crash-and-restart cycle.   It's not 100% clear to me whether the code
you're talking about can be reached in those cases, but I wouldn't bet
against it.
