It looks like Alvaro forgot to include diffs for xact.c in that patch.
I imagine what he had in mind was to add such a function to xact.c.

I would like to counsel *not* doing that, mainly because it wouldn't
have any well-defined result when not inside a subxact.  What we are
doing for other end-of-subxact functions is to pass the parent XID
explicitly as a parameter; it seems best to me to adopt that approach
for the password function too.

Another minor gripe is the comment that says this logic matches inval.c;
that's not true anymore, I think.

Other than that the patch looks okay to me, but I'll wait for Alvaro
to submit a combined patch rather than adjusting xact.c underneath him.

A todo item for you, Bruce, is to put back the missing documentation
that Alvaro complained of:
