Right, planning time would be proportional to the number of partitions
at least in the first version. We may improve upon it later.

The patch does not introduce any new costing model. It costs the
partition-wise join as sum of costs of joins between partitions. The
method to create the paths for joins between partitions is same as
creating the paths for joins between regular tables and then the
method to collect paths across partition-wise joins is same as
collecting paths across child base relations. So, there is a large
chance that the costing for joins between partitions might have a
problem which is showing up here. There may be some special handling
for regular tables versus child tables that may be the root cause. But
I have not seen that kind of code till now.

Can you please provide the outputs of individual partition-joins? If
the plans for joins between partitions are same as the ones chosen for
partition-wise joins, we may need to fix the existing join cost
