parallel.c handles general concerns related to any sort of
parallelism, particularly those related to transaction management,
hence it's in src/backend/access/transam. execParallel.c handles
concerns that are specific to the executor, hence it's in
src/backend/executor. The header comment for execParallel.c is fairly
informative on this point; now that I look at it, parallel.c has only
a stub comment, which really ought to be expanded. Note that while
parallel *query* uses both, a parallel utility command will likely use
only the facilities in parallel.c, so the distinction is not academic.
