The other approach is to make canonical ordering only in find_all_inheritors() by replacing call to find_inheritance_children() with the refactored/modified RelationGetPartitionDispatchInfo(). But that would mean that the callers of find_inheritance_children() would have one ordering, while the callers of find_all_inheritors() would have a different ordering; that brings up chances of deadlocks. That's why I think, we need to think about modifying the common function find_inheritance_children(), so that we would be consistent with the ordering. And then use find_inheritance_children() or find_all_inheritors() in RelationGetPartitionDispatchInfo(). So yes, there would be some modifications to RelationGetPartitionDispatchInfo(). > > Also, need to investigate whether *always* sorting the oids in > canonical order is going to be much expensive than the current sorting > using oids.
