Create action triggers when partitions are detached

Enterprise / PostgreSQL - Alvaro Herrera [] - 21 January 2019 23:08 EST

Detaching a partition from a partitioned table that's constrained by foreign keys requires additional action triggers on the referenced side; otherwise, DELETE/UPDATE actions there fail to notice rows in the table that was partition, and so are incorrectly allowed through. With this commit, those triggers are now created. Conversely, when a table that has a foreign key is attached as a partition to a table that also has the same foreign key, those action triggers are no longer needed, so we remove them.

Add a minimal test case verifying (part of) this.
