That looks good.  But maybe call the function foreign_join_ok() or
something like that?  is_foreign_join() isn't terrible but it sounds a
little odd to me.

The path-copying stuff in get_path_for_epq_recheck() looks a lot
better now, but you neglected to add a comment explaining why you did
it that way (e.g. "Make a shallow copy of the join path, because the
planner might free the original structure after a future add_path().
We don't need to copy the substructure, though; that won't get freed."
 I would forget about setting merge_path->materialize_inner = false;
that doesn't seem essential.  Also, I would arrange things so that if
you hit an unrecognized path type (like a custom join, or a gather)
you skip that particular path instead of erroring out.  I think this
whole function should be moved to core, and I think the argument
should be a RelOptInfo * rather than a List *.

+     * We can't know VERBOSE option is specified or not, so always add shcema

We can't know "whether" VERBOSE...
shcema -> schema

+     * the join relaiton is already considered, so that we won't waste time in


+     * judging safety of join pushdow and adding the same paths again if found


More when I have a bit more time to look at this...
