pgsql: Fix misuse of an integer as a bool.

Tom Lane-2
Fix misuse of an integer as a bool.

pgtls_read_pending is declared to return bool, but what the underlying
SSL_pending function returns is a count of available bytes.

This is actually somewhat harmless if we're using C99 bools, but in
the back branches it's a live bug: if the available-bytes count happened
to be a multiple of 256, it would get converted to a zero char value.
On machines where char is signed, counts of 128 and up could misbehave
as well.  The net effect is that when using SSL, libpq might block
waiting for data even though some has already been received.

Broken by careless refactoring in commit 4e86f1b16, so back-patch
to 9.5 where that came in.

Per bug #15802 from David Binderman.
