pgsql: Warn more strongly about the dangers of exclusive backup mode.

Robert Haas-5
Warn more strongly about the dangers of exclusive backup mode.

Especially, warn about the hazards of mishandling the backup_label
file.  Adjust a couple of server messages to be more clear about
the hazards associated with removing backup_label files, too.

David Steele and Robert Haas, reviewed by Laurenz Albe, Martín
Marqués, Peter Eisentraut, and Magnus Hagander.
