Log Message:
-----------
Fix set_append_rel_pathlist() to deal intelligently with cases where
substituting a child rel's output expressions into the appendrel's restriction
clauses yields a pseudoconstant restriction.  We might be able to skip scanning
that child rel entirely (if we get constant FALSE), or generate a one-time
filter.  8.3 more or less accidentally generated plans that weren't completely
stupid in these cases, but that was only because an extra recursive level of
subquery_planner() always occurred and allowed const-simplification to happen.
8.4's ability to pull up appendrel members with non-Var outputs exposes the
fact that we need to work harder here.  Per gripe from Sergey Burladyan.
