When using the prepared statement protocol the item trees of the CREATE TABLE statements
gets unfixed after completing the prepare part. This makes calling val_int on them to get the
integer value dangerous in check_list_constants and check_range_constants.

It does however behave correctly so the problem is only detected in a debug version where
there is a DBUG_ASSERT that crashes the server

How to repeat:

executed in debug mode and using the prepared statement protocol should do the trick.

Suggested fix:
Evaluate the item tree constant already in the parser and save only the integer value it

Unsafe code in CREATE TABLE with partitions that crashed the MySQL Server in an
DBUG_ASSERT in debug mode.

There is no patch to document in the changelogs, therefore this bug should not be in documenting status. Reverting to Open status.
