Remove typmod checking from the recent security-related patches. It turns
out that ExecEvalVar and friends don't necessarily have access to a tuple
descriptor with correct typmod: it definitely can contain -1, and possibly
might contain other values that are different from the Var's value.
Arguably this should be cleaned up someday, but it's not a simple change,
and in any case typmod discrepancies don't pose a security hazard.
Per reports from numerous people :-(
I'm not entirely sure whether the failure can occur in 8.0 --- the simple
test cases reported so far don't trigger it there. But back-patch the
change all the way anyway.
execQual.c (r126.96.36.199 -> r188.8.131.52)
