The spec is quite clear that rows in table_privileges must correspond
to rows in information_schema.tables, but we don't show materialized
views there.

Perhaps there's a case for showing MVs in the "tables" view, and thence
also in table_privileges, but this patch by itself is flat wrong.

Anyway it seems to me we made that decision already; it's a bit late now
to be revisiting whether MVs should be treated as tables here.
