I've incorporated the tests into the existing kerberos/ as
there didn't seem any need to create another file.

Done. Also rebased and updated for the changes in the TAP testing
infrastructure and other changes. Also added code to track if
credentials were forwarded or not and to log that information.

Yup, this should work fine. I didn't include any explicit testing of
postgres_fdw or dblink in this, yet. Instead, for the moment at least,
I've added to the connection log message an indiciation of if
credentials were passed along with the connection along with tests of
both the negative case and the positive case. Not sure if that's useful
information to have in pg_stat_gssapi, but if so, then we could add it
there pretty easily.

I'm happy to try and get testing with postgres_fdw and dblink working
soon though, assuming there aren't any particular objections to moving
this forward.

Will add to the CF for consideration.
