This looks mandatory to me. Using pg_switch_wal() and a minimum amount
of WAL generated you could just make the set of WAL segments skipped
minimal data.

I have not checked in details, but I think that the positions where
you are applying the filters are using the right approach.

!         !(strncmp(path, "pg_wal", 6) == 0 && IsXLogFileName(path + 7) &&
Please use XLOGDIR here.
