Fix for INFORMATION_SCHEMA.PARTITIONS losing table stats

Here is a fix for the MySQL/TokuDB/MariaDB bug I reported earlier today.  I think this fix is correct (it is only one line) but I don’t delve into the storage engine very often (and particularly not into so I think it would be good to wait for Oracle (or Percona, MariaDB, or Tokutek) to validate that it is correct before using it.

    Must admit that I fail to see any change in the patch at all, two new empty lines and a change of the info call to what it is already is in the code??

    i changed file->info (which set the HA information on the partition) to info() which calls it on the table. I don’t think it is correct, but it fixed the problem for me. The problem is that I_S.partitions calls get_dynamic_partition_info() in a loop, and it ends up pinning the stats from the last partition as stats for all partitions. It needs to take the stats from the most populous partition, or something like that.

      I may have just done something terrible and corrupted memory, etc. I didn’t run the test suite after the change (stupid) but I wanted to let people know that I found, at least, the function with the problem which is get_dynamic_partition_info().

      I really try to stay to high level languages and I haven’t touched C++ since HS. Just looking at the code and figuring out the scope of various variables took a bit because I’m not familiar with the classes being used.
