CACHE INDEX per partition for MyISAM

The newest development in the partitioning code
is WL#4571.

This new feature makes it possible to tie a
partition using MyISAM to a specific cache index.
The syntax for how to do is available in the
above worklog entry.

We found this feature to be useful for enabling
higher performance of parallel ALTER TABLE
(WL#2550). When adding
a primary key to a MyISAM table the key cache in
MyISAM limited scalability of Parallel ALTER TABLE
severely, so adding several key caches, essentially
one per partition we can ensure that the ALTER TABLE
can be fully parallelised (all other ALTER TABLE
on MyISAM already scales perfectly).

We also have some ideas on how to solve the base

New launchpad tree for PARTITION BY RANGE COLUMN_LIST(a,b)

2 years ago still attracts a lot of attention.

So I thought it was a good idea to blog a bit more
about what's going on in the partitioning
development. I decided to check out how easy it is
to externalize my development trees on launchpad.
It turned out to be really easy so I simply
put up the development tree for the new partitioning
feature which I described in my last blog.

I also externalized the Worklog entry for this
development, unfortunately not a …
