To fix this, I've modified the planner and executor so that the planner
adds wholerow as well as ctid and tableoid as resjunk output columns to
the plan for an inheritance tree that contains foreign tables, and that
while the executor uses the ctid and tableoid in the EPQ processing for
child regular tables as before, the executor uses the wholerow and
tableoid for child foreign tables. Patch attached. This is based on
the patch .

Done. I used your tests as reference. Thanks!

I think it would be better that this is handled in the same way as an
inheritance tree that turns out to be a singe table that doesn't have
any descendants in acquire_inherited_sample_rows(). That would still
output the message as shown below, but I think that that would be more
consistent with the existing code. The patch works so. (The warnings
are also fixed.)

INFO: "parent": scanned 0 of 0 pages, containing 0 live rows and 0 dead
rows; 0 rows in sample, 0 estimated total rows

I'd like to give my opinions on those things later on.
Sorry for the long delay.
