I'm not sure how to test your patch with the Debian package, but I
tried it successfully with a freshly compiled PostgreSQL 9.1alpha3
(the latest alpha as of this moment). Results (kfreebsd-amd64 @ KVM):

Without your patch the following gets logged (note that the errno
seems to be different from what Emanuele and me get with the Debian
packaged 8.4.7 version, but in both cases the identification fails):

LOG:  could not get peer credentials: No such file or directory
FATAL:  Ident authentication failed for user "itsme"

[ Warning: I manually copied (typed) this from a KVM console. ]

While with your patch nothing gets logged, the identification just works.
