I suspect it's the former. Suspect that the shared memory that holds
the "parallel desc" isn't properly aligned:
pscan = shm_toc_allocate(pcxt->toc, node->pscan_len);
* We allocate backwards from the end of the segment, so that the TOC entries
* can grow forward from the start of the segment.
extern void *
shm_toc_allocate(shm_toc *toc, Size nbytes)
volatile shm_toc *vtoc = toc;
/* Make sure request is well-aligned. */
nbytes = BUFFERALIGN(nbytes);
return ((char *) toc) + (total_bytes - allocated_bytes - nbytes);
* Initialize a region of shared memory with a table of contents.
shm_toc_create(uint64 magic, void *address, Size nbytes)
shm_toc *toc = (shm_toc *) address;
Assert(nbytes > offsetof(shm_toc, toc_entry));
toc->toc_magic = magic;
toc->toc_total_bytes = nbytes;
toc->toc_allocated_bytes = 0;
toc->toc_nentry = 0;
Afaict shm_create/shm_toc_allocate don't actually guarantee that the end
of the toc's memory is suitably aligned. But I didn't yet have any
coffee, so ...
