21  * Reasons for signaling a Postgres child process (a backend or an auxiliary
22  * process, like checkpointer). We can cope with concurrent signals for different
23  * reasons. However, if the same reason is signaled multiple times in quick
24  * succession, the process is likely to observe only one notification of it.
25  * This is okay for the present uses.
26  *
27  * Also, because of race conditions, it's important that all the signals be
28  * defined so that no harm is done if a process mistakenly receives one.
