    [SPARK-17970][SQL][WIP] store partition spec in metastore for data source 
table

    ## What changes were proposed in this pull request?
    
    We should follow hive table and also store partition spec in metastore for 
data source table.
    This brings 2 benefits:
    
    1. It's more flexible to manage the table data files, as users can use `ADD 
PARTITION`, `DROP PARTITION` and `RENAME PARTITION`
    2. We don't need to cache all file status for data source table anymore.
    
    ## How was this patch tested?
    
    existing tests.
