No, it is a reasonable choice, It's not bad if it has valid
clauses only for partial indexes.  What is Ugl.. is my additional
patch:(, which let IndexClauseSet to have valid clauses.

No matter if the index is used multiple places, indexrinfos is
determined only with baserestrictinfos of the owner relation and
itself's indpred, which are invariant through the following steps.

One arguable point on the place is that check_partial_indexes
could be called again with longer restrictions (by eclass
claues), but the comment suggests that the last call will be
valid in the following steps so creating indexrinfos in every
calls should be valid.

However possibly a bit innefficient, we can choose to use the
first-created indexrinfos, which would be longer than that could
be re-created.

Such table appears as multiple baserels having maybe different
baserestrictinfo, so no problme on the case.
