Agree with the proposed reorganizing and adding a partcache.c, which I
tried to do in the attached patch.

* The new src/backend/utils/cache/partcache.c contains functions that
initialize relcache's partitioning related fields. Various partition
bound comparison and search functions (and then some) that work off of the
cached information are moved. Also, since we cache partition qual,
interface functions RelationGetPartitioQual(Relation) and
get_partition_qual_relid(Oid) are moved too.

* The new src/include/utils/partcache.h contains various struct
definitions that are moved from backend/catalog/partition.c,
include/catalog/partition.h, and include/utils/rel.h. Also, declarations
of interface functions of partcache.c.
