I find this patch utterly unreadable, because of your cavalier disregard
for making the comments match the truth.  You have copied-and-pasted the
original SysV code and fixed some small fraction of the comments, and I
cannot tell which ones still reflect reality --- but I can tell that a
lot of them don't.

Also, I don't see where this implements any sort of detection of live
backends attached to an existing segment, so I don't think you have
responded to that objection.  Magnus' idea for Windows was to use a
segment set up to automatically go away as soon as the last attacher
died, but AFAICT that isn't how this works.
