Applied to CVS HEAD, 8.2 and 8.1.

If we want to start tracking the grantor as a shared dependency, and
have REVOKE work per spec (i.e. only revoke the privileges actually
granted by the role executing REVOKE), those are separate patches (and
they should be applied only to HEAD).  This patch merely fixes the fact
that pg_dumpall failed to work for busted databases.
