Here are various fixes for syslogger.

- syslogger_parseArgs_assert.patch (bug #3621)
        The assertion in syslogger_parseArgs() was wrong. The number of
        arguments passed to syslogger is changed to 4 in 8.1 or later.
        This patch should be appled to 8.1, 8.2 and 8.3dev.

- logfile_rotate.patch (bug #3622)
        This patch fixes two bugs in the log file rotation.
        This is only for 8.3dev.
        1. pg_rotate_logfile() force log files to rotate. Both .log and .csv
           files are treated the same way as size-limited rotation.
        2. Fix a copy-and-paste bug in updating csvlogFile. CSV log was lost
           after swiching files in all case of the rotations.

- remove_redirect_stderr.patch
        redirect_stderr is renamed to logging_collector, but the old name
        is left in postgresql.conf. This is only for 8.3dev.


BTW, I found empty .log files are created under $PGDATA/pg_log/ even if
log_destination does not contain 'stderr' (i.e, only csvlog or syslog).
Is this an intentional behavior?
