No, the collapse_limit variables are entirely unrelated to subquery
flattening, or to qual pushdown for that matter.  They only restrict the
number of join paths we consider.  And we will attempt to push down
quals into an unflattened subquery, too, if it looks safe.  See
subquery_is_pushdown_safe, qual_is_pushdown_safe, etc in allpaths.c.
