I tried to review this patch.

It seems to me its implementation is reasonable and enough simple.
All the works of this patch is pick-up "force_not_null" option from
pg_attribute.attfdwoptions and transform its data structure into suitable
form to the existing BeginCopyFrom().
So, I'd almost like to mark this patch "Ready for Committer".

Here are only two points I'd like to comment on.

+       tuple = SearchSysCache2(ATTNUM,
+                               RelationGetRelid(rel),
+                               Int16GetDatum(attnum));
+       if (!HeapTupleIsValid(tuple))
+           ereport(ERROR,
+                   (errcode(ERRCODE_UNDEFINED_OBJECT),
+                    errmsg("cache lookup failed for attribute %d of
relation %u",
+                           attnum, RelationGetRelid(rel))));

The tuple should be always found unless we have any bugs that makes
mismatch between pg_class.relnatts and actual number of attributes.
So, it is a case to use elog(), instead of ereport() with error code.

One other point is diffset of regression test, when I run `make check
-C contrib/file_fdw'.
Do we have something changed corresponding to COPY TO/FROM statement
since 8th-August to now?
