This seems like it's a lot simpler than before, which is good. It
looks to me as though there should really be two separate hooks,
though, one for what is now FCET_BE_HOOKED and one for everything
else. For FCET_BE_HOOKED, you want a function that takes an Oid and
returns a bool. For the other event types, the functionId and event
arguments are OK, but I think you should forget about the save_datum
stuff and just always pass fcache->flinfo and &fcache->private. The
plugin can get the effect of save_datum by passing around whatever
state it needs to hold on to using fcache->private. So:
bool (*needs_function_call_hook)(Oid fn_oid);
void (*function_call_hook)(Oid fn_oid, FunctionCallEventType event,
FmgrInfo flinfo, Datum *private);
Another general comment is that you've not done a very complete job
updating the comments; there are several of them in fmgr.c that are no
longer accurate. Also, please zap the unnecessary whitespace changes.
