You can't change the definition of AcquireSampleRowsFunc without
updating the documentation in fdwhandler.sgml, but I think I don't
immediately understand why that's a thing we want to do at all if
neither file_fdw nor postgres_fdw are going to use the additional
argument.  It seems to be entirely pointless because the new value
being passed down is always zero and even if the callee were to update
it, do_analyze_rel() would just ignore the change on return.  Am I
missing something here?  Also, the whitespace-only changes to fdwapi.h
related to AcquireSampleRowsFunc going to get undone by pgindent, so
even if there's some reason to change that you should leave the lines
that don't need changing untouched.
I Understood that we could not change the definition of AcquireSampleRowsFunc without updating the documentation in fdwhandler.sgml. In the last patch I have modified the definition of AcquireSampleRowsFunc to handle the inheritance case. If the table being analyzed has one or more children, ANALYZE will gather statistics twice: once on the rows of parent table only and second on the rows of the parent table with all of its children. So while reporting the progress the value of number of target sample rows and number of rows sampled is mismatched.
For single relation it works fine.

In the attached patch I have not change the definition of AcquireSampleRowsFunc.
I have updated inheritance case in the the documentation.

+            /* Reset rows processed to zero for the next column */
+            pgstat_progress_update_param(PROGRESS_ANALYZE_NUM_ROWS_PROCESSED,

This seems like a bad design.  If you see a value other than zero in
this field, you still won't know how much progress analyze has made,
because you don't know which column you're processing.  I also feel
like you're not paying enough attention to a key point here that I
made in my last review, which is that you need to look at where
ANALYZE actually spends most of the time.  If the process of computing
the per-row statistics consumes significant CPU time, then maybe
there's some point in trying to instrument it, but does it?  Unless
you know the answer to that question, you don't know whether there's
even a point to trying to instrument this.

Understood. The computing statistics phase takes long time so I am looking at the code.
