So, because we want to create an Append path for each partitioned table in
a tree separately, we'll need RelOptInfo for each one, which in turn
requires an AppendRelInfo.  Note that we do that only for those
partitioned child RTEs that have inh set to true, so that all the later
stages will treat it as the parent rel to create an Append path for.
There would still be partitioned child RTEs with inh set to false for
which, just like before, no AppendRelInfos and RelOptInfos are created;
they get added as the only member of partitioned_rels in the
PartitionedChildRelInfo of each partitioned table.  Finally, when the
Append path for the root parent is created, its subpaths list will contain
paths of leaf partitions of all levels and its partitioned_rels list
should contain the RT indexes of partitioned tables of all levels.

If we have the following partition tree:

    / | \
   B  C  D
     / \
    E   F

The following RTEs will be created, in that order.  RTEs with inh=true are
shown with suffix _i.  RTEs that get an AppendRelInfo (& a RelOptInfo) are
shown with suffix _a.
