I should be able to use delimited identifiers in the
PARTITION KEY and PARTITION clauses. I can't.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table abc(`a b c` int) partition by key(`a b c`);
ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'b c) (PARTITION p0  ENGINE = MyISAM)' at line 1

Use field delimiters on field names in frm file to ensure all field names becomes correct
when parsed from frm file
