I'm a unhappy how this is reusing SIGINT for WalSndLastCycleHandler.
Normally INT is used cancel interrupts, and since walsender is now also
working as a normal backend, this overlap is bad.  Even for plain
walsender backend this seems bad, because now non-superusers replication
users will terminate replication connections when they do
pg_cancel_backend().  For replication=dbname users it's especially bad
because there can be completely legitimate uses of pg_cancel_backend().
