Per Jan's comment, there is no need to mess with the existing
datastructure.  I'd think more of *copying* the dllist into some array
in shared memory.  This is code that would only need to exist in the
Windows port.

The postmaster writes the array (and really would have no need to read
it).  Sub-postmasters would need to read the array, either to check an
incoming cancel request or to get the current-session key value to pass
back to the client.  I don't think that PostgresMain or any subsidiary
routine would ever need to touch it.
