Yeah, after some reflection I agree.  Basically what we want for the ALTER
TABLE scenario is "ignore *all* permissions checks"; if somebody adds some
other check here in future, it probably also ought to be skipped during
a rebuild.  So a single bool ought to be fine.

Are you intending to back-patch this?  It seems like a bug fix --- but not
a very high-priority one, so at this point maybe it should wait till after
the release wraps.
