While playing around with the patch I have noticed one regression with
the partial partition-wise aggregate.```

I am consistently able to reproduce this on my local machine.

Scenario: Group by on non-key column and only one tuple per group.

Complete Test:
--------------------
create table t(a int,b int) partition by range(a);
create table t1 partition of t for values from (1) to (100000);
create table t2 partition of t for values from (100000) to (200000);

insert into t values (generate_series(1,199999),generate_series(1, 199999));
postgres=# explain analyze select sum(a) from t group by b;
