Currently, YSQL table information is maintained in namespace and table ID maps instead of namespace and table name maps and this causes problems while trying to look up tables by their names. YSQL table maps also need to store schema since the same database can have same table name in different schemas.

This is needed by CDC as well as some yb-admin commands.

postgres=# create table foo(a int);
postgres=# alter table foo rename to bar;
postgres=# select * from bar;
(0 rows)

postgres=# \d
        List of relations
 Schema | Name | Type  |  Owner
 public | bar  | table | postgres
(1 row)

The UI will still show the old name:
