I concur that the messages added to pg_ctl are bizarrely formatted.
Why would you put a newline in the middle of a sentence, when you
could equally well emit something like

WARNING: online backup mode is active.
Shutdown will not complete until pg_stop_backup() is called.

While we're on the subject, the messages added to xlog.c do not
follow the style guidelines: in particular, errdetail should be
a complete sentence, and the WARNING is trying to stuff independent
thoughts into one message.  I'd probably do

errmsg("online backup mode cancelled"),
errdetail("\"%s\" was renamed to \"%s\".", ...

errmsg("online backup mode was not cancelled"),
errdetail("Failed to rename \"%s\" to \"%s\": %m", ...

Lastly, the changes to pmdie's SIGINT handling seem quite bogus.
Don't you need to transition into WAIT_BACKUP rather than WAIT_BACKENDS
state in that case too?  Shouldn't you do CancelBackup *before*
PostmasterStateMachine?  The thing screams of race conditions.
