Looks good (for me).

Although it is not the cause of these errors (or any errors on
regress), build_paths_for_OR (which doesn't seem to be called in
regression tests) doesn't set indexrinfos
properly. match_clauses_to_index can commonize(?) the process in
return for additional list copy and concat. The attached diff is
doing in the latter method. Avoiding the copies will make the
code a bit complicated.

But anyway regtests doesn't say whether it is sane or not:( (TODO)

During considerartion on parameterized joins in
get_join_index_paths, caluseset fed to get_index_paths is
generated from given join (j|e)clausesets. So completing the
clauseset with necessary restrictinfo from rcaluseset fixes the

The attached patch applies on the latest v5 patch and will
address above issues. (And modifies expected files, which are the
manifestation of this improovement).
