Hmm.  That's bad.  I kind of wonder how sane it is to think that we
can invoke SQL-callable functions during a relcache reload, because
couldn't we be processing an invalidation in the context of an aborted
transaction?  And I wonder why we really need or want to do that
anyway.  For purposes of equalPartitionDescs(), it seems like the
relevant test is datumIsEqual(), not the equality operator derived
from the partition opclass.

But I think the immediate problem here is some fuzzy thinking about
the handling of the values taken from b1->content and b2->content.
Those have to be checked before examining values from b1->datums
and/or b2->datums, and the latter should be inspected only if the
former are both identical and both RANGE_DATUM_FINITE.  I'll push a
fix for that.
