These days I'd be inclined to use a PG_TRY construct to guarantee the
flag is cleared, rather than loading another cleanup operation onto
unrelated code.

The MyProc != NULL tests are a waste of code space.  You can't even
acquire an LWLock without MyProc being set, let alone access tables.

The real issue here though is whether anyone can blow a hole in the
xmin assumptions: is there any situation where ignoring a vacuum
transaction breaks things?  I haven't had time to think about it
in any detail, but it definitely needs to be thought about.
