The difference between maxing out at 1200 sessions and 1300 sessions
doesn't excite me a lot --- in most environments you'd be well advised
to use many fewer backends and a connection pooler.  But in any case
the main point is that this is *one* benchmark on *one* platform.  Does
anyone outside Sun even know what the benchmark is, beyond the fact that
it's running a whole lot of sessions?

Also, you should not imagine that boosting NUM_CLOG_BUFFERS has zero
cost.  The linear searches used in slru.c start to look pretty
questionable if we want more than a couple dozen buffers.  I find it
entirely likely that simply changing the constant would be a net loss
on many workloads.
