Ok, committed with some further cleanup.

Do you think the docs need to be updated for this, and if so,
where? The only place I found in the docs that speak about how the
bgwriter works is in config.sgml, where bgwriter_delay is
described. Want to suggest an update to that?
This new behaviour might warrant a mention, as in the attached
doc-patch.
Hmm, the word "hibernate" might confuse people in this context. I
committed this as:
It then sleeps for <varname>bgwriter_delay</> milliseconds, and
repeats. When there are no dirty buffers in the buffer pool, though,
it goes into a longer sleep regardless of <varname>bgwriter_delay</>.
Thanks!
