Now that the CheckpointStartLock starvation has been taken care of, I'm seeing another problem with checkpoints in my test run: mdsync never finishes.

My proposed fix is to make a copy of pendingOpsTable before entering the loop. AbsorbFsyncRequest will put new requests to a fresh new pendingOpsTable, while the mdsync loop will drain the copy. I'll write a patch along those lines if there's no better ideas.

Yeah, I'm also anxious about the stuck. I wrote a fix to use a copy of
pendingOpsTable as you said, when I implemented Load distributed checkpoint
patch. ( It would make me
very happy if you review my patch and check whether my fix is proper.

I just posted a patch to pgsql-patches that fixes the issue along the lines of your Load distributed checkpoint patch. Load distributed checkpoint patch now just needs to add the "calculate total file length" and the nap delay to mdsync.

Thanks for the patch!
