Thank you for reviewing the patch.
The attached patch implements a way to report sample rows count from
acquire_sample_rows() even if called for child tables.

I have added the phase called
I have also updated the documentation.

The ANALYZE command takes long time in computing statistics phase.So I
think we can add some column or phase so that user can easily understand
the progress.
How about adding new column like "num_rows_processed" will compute the
statistics of specified column?
How about separate the computing "inheritance statistics" phase from the
computing regular "single table" statistics.
