Thank you for your review and changes!

It's correct behavior because of struct WorkerInstrumentation contains
struct Instrumentation instrument. But planstate->instrument is struct
Instrumentation too.

It's good idea. Now additional statistics are only printed when we set

New version of this patch prints extra statistics for all cases of
multiple loops, not only for Nested Loop. Also I fixed the example by
adding VERBOSE.

Please don't hesitate to share any thoughts on this topic!
