Yes, the plan clearly is built expecting $2 to be of type "name",
so this has been wrong since day 1. Amazing that no actual bug reports
have surfaced from it.

That would be OK. The more usual coding pattern is to declare a local
NameData variable, namestrcpy into that, and then PointerGetDatum on
the variable's address is actually correct. However, that's just
micro-optimization that I don't think we care about here.

Yes, while harmless that's clearly in error, should be zero. The other
call of SPI_execute_plan in ruleutils.c has the same thinko.
Please fix and back-patch.
