Thanks a lot Robert. Some less patches to maintain :).

I am reviewing those changes and contribute to that thread if necessary.

There are two ways we can do this
1. In expand_inherited_rtentry(), remember (childRTE and childRTIndex)
or just childRTIndex (using this we can fetch childRTE calling
rtfetch()) of intermediate partitioned tables. Once we are done
expanding immediate children, call expand_inherited_rtentry()
recursively on this list.

2. expand_inherited_tables() scans root->parse->rtable only upto the
end of original range table list. Make it go beyond that end,
expanding any new entries added for intermediate partitions.

FWIW, the first option allows us to keep all AppendRelInfos
corresponding to one partitioned relation together and also expands
the whole partition hierarchy in one go. Second will require minimal
changes to expand_inherited_rtentry(). Both approaches will spend time
scanning same number of RTE; the first will have them in different
lists, and second will have them in root->parse->rtable. I don't see
one being more attractive than the other. Do you have any opinion?

I will submit the rebased patches after reviewing/adjusting Amit's
changes and also the changes in expand_inherited_rtentry() after we
have concluded the approach to be taken.
