Fix pcp_promote_node bug that fails promoting node 0. (Yugo Nagata)
The master node could not be promoted by pcp_promote_node with the following error;
FATAL: invalid pgpool mode for process recovery request DETAIL: specified node is already primary node, can't promote node id 0
In streaming replication mode, there is a case that Pgpool-II regards the status of primary node as "standby" for some reasons, for example, when pg_ctl promote is executed manually during Pgpool-II is running, in which case, it seems to Pgpool-II that the primary node doesn't exist.
This status mismatch should be fixed by pcp_promote_node, but when the node is the master node (the first alive node), it fails as mentioned above.
The reason is as following. before changing the status, pcp_promote_node checks if the specified node is already primary or not by comparing the node id with PRIMARY_NODE_ID. However, if the primary doesn't exist from Pgpool-II's view, PRIMARY_NODE_ID is set to 0, which is same as MASTER_NODE_ID. Hence, when the master node is specified to be promoted, pcp_promote_node is confused that this node is already primary and doesn't have to be promoted, and it exits with the error.
To fix this, pcp_promote_node should check the node id by using REAL_PRIMARY_NODE_ID, which is set -1 when the primary doesn't exist, rather than PRIMARY_NODE_ID.
