I came up with the following patch.  What this does is cancel any
ANALYZE started by autovacuum, at the top of ALTER TABLE.

There is a new function relation_openrv_cav().  This is the same as
relation_openrv, except that it will also cancel analyzes.  I'm still
wondering if I should merge the two and have a third boolean argument to
specify whether to do the cancel.
