This looks correct. I have modified it to make it simple in the given
patch. But, I think we shouldn't refer to a function e.g.
deparseExplicitTargetlist() in the comment. Instead we should describe
the intent e.g. "deparse SELECT clause from the given targetlist" or
"deparse SELECT clause from attr_needed".

Right now, we are calculating tlist whether or not the ForeignPath
emerges as the cheapest path. Instead we should calculate tlist, the
first time we need it and then add it to the fpinfo.
