Seems reasonable.  I have some assorted nitpicks.

1. The header comment for pass_down_bound() could mention "one or more
levels of subqueries" rather than "a subquery".

2. The first of the comments in the function body appears to have a
whitespace issue that needs to be fixed manually or, better yet,
addressed by pgindent.

3. The formatting of the comment in the regression tests appears to be
unlike any other comment in that same file.

4. I am pretty doubtful that "Memory: 25kB" is going to be stable
enough for us to want that output memorialized in the regression
tests. It seems like it might vary on different platforms - e.g.
32-bit vs. 64-bit - and it also seems like minor changes to how we do
sorting could perturb it and, perhaps, make it unstable even if today
it isn't.  So I think it would be good to give this a bit more thought
and see if you can come up with a way to test this without running
afoul of that problem.  Maybe adapt from this:

do $$declare x text; begin execute 'explain select 1' into x; if x !~
'^Result' then raise notice '%', x; else raise notice 'looks ok'; end
if; end;$$;

BTW, regarding the other patch on this thread, it struck me that maybe
it would be better to just reduce/limit the fetch count for the cursor
instead of trying to inject LIMIT n into the query itself.  That's not
as good for query optimization purposes but it's a lot more
