I have resolved all the comments/issues reported in this new patch-set.

Changes done by Ashutosh Bapat for splitting out create_grouping_paths()
into separate functions so that partitionwise aggregate code will use them
were based on my partitionwise aggregate changes. Those were like
refactoring changes. And thus, I have refactored them separately and before
any partitionwise changes (see
0005-Split-create_grouping_paths-and-Add-GroupPathExtraDa.patch). And then
I have re-based all partitionwise changes over it including all fixes.

The patch-set is complete now. But still, there is a scope of some comment
improvements due to all these refactorings. I will work on it. Also, need
to update few documentations and indentations etc. Will post those changes
in next patch-set. But meanwhile, this patch-set is ready to review.

Yep. Done this way.

Oops. Will do that in next patchset.

Thanks for pointing out, I have missed this at first place it self.
