Applied with some minor comment updates.

I noticed that shmem.c holds ShmemIndexLock considerably longer than any
other spinlock is held, and across operations that could theoretically
fail (hashtable manipulations).  This doesn't matter a lot in the Unix
code because only the postmaster ever executes ShmemInitStruct, but
in the Windows port we run that code every time a backend is launched.
I think that we could convert that spinlock to an LWLock.  Will look into it.
