So this looks like a bugfix that we should backpatch, but on closer
inspection it turns out that we need the rowtype OID to be fixed, which
it isn't unless this:


so I'm afraid this cannot be backpatched at all; if we did, the rowtype
wouldn't match for already-initdb'd installations.

I'm gonna push this to master only, which means you won't be able to
rely on pg_shseclabel until 9.6.
