Thanks for catching this. For now this isn't a problem since
generate_partition_qual() is crafting PartitionBoundInfo which it
doesn't use anywhere else. But if the function gets used where the
PartitionBoundSpec is being used somewhere else as well. While you are
at it, can we use castNode() in place of
PartitionBoundSpec *spec = (PartitionBoundSpec *) bound; Or do you
think it should be done separately?
