fdw_recheck_quals seems likely to be very convenient for FDW authors,
and I think ripping it out would be a terrible decision.

I think ForeignRecheck should first call ExecQual to test
fdw_recheck_quals.  If it returns false, return false.  If it returns
true, then give the FDW callback a chance, if one is defined.  If that
returns false, return false.   If we haven't yet returned false,
return true.
