Plan C would be something like

        if (num_held_lwlocks >= MAX_SIMUL_LWLOCKS)
                release the acquired lock;
                elog(ERROR, "too many LWLocks taken");

But we couldn't just call LWLockRelease, since it expects the lock to
be recorded in held_lwlocks[].  We'd have to duplicate a lot of code,
or split LWLockRelease into multiple routines, neither of which seem
attractive answers considering that this must be a can't-happen
case anyway.

PANIC it will be, unless someone thinks of a reason why not by

                        regards, tom lane
