Actually, it turns out that NOT VALID foreign keys were already buggy
here, and fixing them automatically fixes this case as well, because the
fix involves touching pg_get_constraintdef to dump the flag.  This also
gets it into psql's \d.  Patch attached.

(Maybe the changes in psql's describe.c should be reverted, not sure.)
