I don't see much point in doing it that way, since that code could not
possibly work right if the constraint has a different dump flag from the
table: it would either omit a required component of the table or emit an
ALTER TABLE against a nonexistent table.  So this change could not fix any
bug, and might introduce some if the flag values weren't carefully kept
equal.  Note also that the normal "not separate" code path for dumping
defaults hasn't got any test on the default's flag, so this would be
adding inconsistency compared to that.
