Applied with revisions.  I had to whack around the code associated with
the subtrans XID cache, because it was seriously violating the locking
requirements for addition/removal of running XIDs in PGPROC (see the
comments in GetSnapshotData, GetNewTransactionId, CommitTransaction).
It's possible that for subxact XIDs we need not be quite so tense, but
I would rather be conservative now and consider optimizations later.

The "update" in xact.c seemed to consist of wholesale removal of the top
comment.  I didn't apply it, because the comment didn't seem that
useless.  It does need editorial work, but it's not content-free...

On this it seemed better to make use of TRY/CATCH to reset the flag
instead of putting the burden on xact.c.  Now that we have TRY/CATCH
I think we should make an effort to do things that way where possible.
