I had actually been thinking about this again today. I had previously
not thought  __attribute__((cold)) would be a good idea since if we
mark elog_start() with that, then code paths with elog(NOTICE) and
elog(LOG) not to mention DEBUG would be marked as cold. Today I was
thinking, to get around that issue, we might be able to generate
another thin wrapper around elog_start() and mark that as
__attribute__((cold)) and fudge the macro a bit to call that function
instead if it can detect a compile time const level >= ERROR. I've not
looked at the code again to remind myself if that would be possible.
