I think the table states are invalidated whenever the table sync
worker starts, because the table sync worker updates its status of
pg_subscription_rel and commits it before starting actual copy. So we
cannot rely on that. I thought we can store last_start_time into
pg_subscription_rel but it might be overkill. I'm now thinking to
change GetSubscriptionNotReadyRealtions so that last_start_time in
SubscriptionRelState is taken over to new list.
