Yes, some kind of routine to extract all the referenced relation OIDs
in a plan tree would be a good idea.  I can provide that.  The inval
callback just tells you the OID of the relation that got flushed; it's
up to you to get from there to the plans you need to rebuild.  Perhaps
a hash table would work well.

BTW, the inval callback had better just mark the plans invalid, not
try to rebuild them right away.  I don't think it's safe to try to
do more database accesses while we're in the relcache invalidation
path.  "Rebuild plan on next attempted use" seems like a better idea.
