Applied with revisions --- mostly cosmetic, but there were a couple of
things that seemed really broken.  In particular, I didn't trust at all
your use of struct assignment to copy VXIDs into and out of PGPROC.
I believe that the C compiler is entitled to implement struct assignment
by bytewise memcpy, for instance, and so it wouldn't be atomic.  The
LocalTransactionId can be fetched or stored atomically, but you have to
write it as an integer assignment to be sure that that's what happens.
I also fixed sequence.c to not force XID assignment --- it can perfectly
well use the LocalTransactionId for what it's doing.

Also, I didn't add the proposed regression test, as it seems much too
fragile --- concurrent autovacuum activity would make it fail, for
instance.

There are a couple of loose ends, which I'll post about separately
on -hackers.
