Upstream discussion and inclusion [1]
Test build [2] in ppa.

This is already applied to all stable branches and master, so we can assume that we can sync over it on any next debian version.

Looks good, +1. Great work on the analysis, specially on a non-traditional arch. I started this review by preparing my raspberrypi3 but will just give up, so slow it is :)

One comment only, entirely optional. It's just that I have been given this kind of review feedback in the past about patches. It was suggested that they be "clean" without the equivalent of --show-c-functions bits, i.e.:

+@@ -3139,7 +3139,7 @@

instead of

+@@ -3139,7 +3139,7 @@ void per_node_error_log(POOL_CONNECTION_POOL *backend, int node_id, char *query,

One way to do it, assuming you have ~/.quiltrc & friends setup up like that, is to just refresh it:
dquilt push lp1777418-fix-arm-crash.patch
dquilt refresh lp1777418-fix-arm-crash.patch
dquilt pop -a

Just a comment, +1 without that.

I actually got Debian feedback twice that I should have those extra context in the diff.
Due to that my dquilt .quiltrc has --show-c-function :-)
And I personally like it as well.
If I'd refresh with my quiltrc it might shorten it, but keep the functions.

Unless we have a rule (that I'd want to challenge then) I'll keep the function in the diff hunk headers.

Thanks for the review, just curious what was your source of "you should not have these" feedback?

25+Subject: [PATCH] Fix segfault in per_node_error_log() on armhf architecture.
27+pool_extract_error_message() incorrectly returns 255 (in decimal) on
28+the architecture when previous message was not an error or a notice
29+message. In this case per_node_error_log() happily calls ereport since
30+the return value from pool_extract_error_message() is greater than
31+0. Unfortunately the message string returned by
32+pool_extract_error_message() points to garbage memory in this case, a
33+segfault occurs.
35+The fix gives per_node_error_log() a guard against the bug of
36+pool_extract_error_message(). Moreover, the change is more consistent
37+with other places where pool_extract_error_message() is called.
39+Fix for pool_extract_error_message() will come later on.
43+for more detailed discussion.
45+Problem reported and patch by Christian Ehrhardt.
