Yeah, furthermore, it doesn't notify to other backends, that is
what I forgotten at the time:(

So, it seems reasonable that all stuffs ride on the cache
invalidation mechanism.

Object class id and object id should be necessary to be
adequitely notificated to fdws but the current invalidation
mechanism donesn't convey the latter. It is hidden in hash
code. This is resolved just by additional member in PlanInvalItem
or resolving oid from hash code(this would need catalog scan..).

PlanCache*Callback() just do invalidtion and throw the causeal
PlanInvalItem away. If plancache had oid lists of foreign
servers, foreign tables, user mappings or FDWS, we can notify
FDWs of invalidation with the causal object.

- Adding CachedPlanSource with some additional oid lists, which
  will be built by extract_query_dependencies.

- In PlanCache*Callback(), class id and object id of the causal
  object is notified to FDW.

Yeah. Altough cache invalidation would accur amid transaction..

But we dont' see a proper way to "fix" this since we here don't
use this.
