Actually, I referenced functions and operator classes defined in
hash_part.sql, not insert.sql.  Although as you point out, I didn't think
very hard about the significance of $2 passed to coalesce in those
functions.  I will fix that and add it back, along with some other changes
that makes them almost identical with definitions in hash_part.sql.

Because hash_part.sql and partition_prune.sql tests run in parallel, I've
decided to rename the functions, operator classes, and the tables in
partition_prune.sql.  It seems like a good idea in any case.  Also, since
the existing pruning tests were written with that table, I decided not to
change that.

Will post an updated patch after addressing David's comment.
