Timings for the 100-database pg_dumpall:

HEAD:       131s
HEAD+patch:  33s
9.5:          8.6s

Nice improvement for such a simple patch.

I confirmed that this fixed dumping of the function ACL in my test case.

Makes sense.

As far as I know, none.  The current behavior doesn't match the commit

Good question.  I think it's fine and possibly even optimal.  One can imagine
other designs that remember whether any GRANT or REVOKE has happened since
initdb, but I see no definite reason to prefer that alternative.

I like the structure of this test suite.
