== Applied Patches ==

Heikki Linnakangas pushed:

- Add a GUC to report whether data page checksums are enabled.  Bernd

Alvaro Herrera pushed:

- Rename various "freeze multixact" variables.  It seems to make more
  sense to use "cutoff multixact" terminology throughout the backend
  code; "freeze" is associated with replacing of an Xid with
  FrozenTransactionId, which is not what we do for MultiXactIds.
  Andres Freund Some adjustments by Álvaro Herrera

- Remove `proc` argument from LockCheckConflicts.  This has been
  unused since commit 8563ccae2caf.  Noted by Antonin Houska

Robert Haas pushed:

- Typo fix.  Etsuro Fujita

- Documentation correction.  Etsuro Fujita

- Fix compiler warning in WaitForBackgroundWorkerStartup().  Per
  complaint from Andrew Gierth.

Fujii Masao pushed:

- Fix typo in comment.  Ian Lawrence Barwick
