Here's the set of patches rebased on latest head, which also has a
commit to eliminate scans on partitioned tables. This change has
caused problems with multi-level partitioned tables, that I have not
fixed in this patch set. Also a couple of partition-wise join plans
for single-level partitioned tables have changed to non-partition-wise
joins. I haven't fixed those as well.

I have added a separate patch to fix add_paths_to_append_rel() to
collect partitioned_rels list for join relations. Please let me know
if this looks good. I think it needs to be merged into some other
patch, but I am not sure which. Probably we should just treat it as
another refactoring patch.
