The patch and the idea looks good to me. I haven't reviewed it
I noticed a type "suporious", I think you meant "spurious"? Probably
that comment should be part of the function which marks the connection
as invalid e.g. InvalidateConnectionForMapping().
pgfdw_xact_callback() reports the reason for disconnection while
closing a connection. May be we want to report the reason for
disconnection here as well. Also, may be we want to create a function
to discard connection from an entry so that we consistently do the
same things while discarding a connection.
