Still i feel the GRANT statements should be present, as the create

is generated only with -C option. So attached patch produces the GRANT
statements based
on the -x option.

The attached patch does the job fine. However, I am a little skeptical
about this addition, since, it is clearly mentioned in the documentation of
pg_dump that it would not restore global objects, then why expecting this.
This addditon makes pg_dump -C somewhat special as now it is restoring
these grant statements. Only if we consider the popular method of
dump-restore mentioned in the thread (https://www.postgresql.org/me
ssage-id/E1VYMqi-0001P4-P4%40wrigleys.postgresql.org) with pg_dumpall -g
and then individual pg_dump, then it would be helpful to have this patch.
