      Bug #45807: crash accessing partitioned table and sql_mode
      contains ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY
      
      The partitioning code needs to issue a Item::fix_fields()
      on the partitioning expression in order to prepare 
      it for being evaluated.
      It does this by creating a special table and a table list 
      for the scope of the partitioning expression.
      In doing so it was not initializing the cacheable_table
      flag to true and this caused problems with the code 
      in Item_field::fix_fields() that calculates if the 
      ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY mode constraints are being met.
      Fixed by rectifying the following errors :
      1. Item_field::fix_fields() : the code that check for 
      ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY relies on having tables with 
      cacheable_table set. This is mostly true, the only 
      two exceptions being the partitioning context table
      and the trigger context table.
      Fixed by taking the current parsing context if no link
      to the TABLE_LIST instance is present in the cached_table.
      
      2. fix_fields_part_func() : 
      
      2a. The code that adds the table being created to the 
      scope for the partitioning expression is mostly a copy 
      of the add_table_to_list and friends with one exception :
      it was not marking the table as cacheable (something that
      normal add_table_to_list is doing). This caused the 
      problem in the check for ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY in 
      Item_field::fix_fields() to appear.
      Fixed by setting the correct members to make the table
      cacheable.
      The ideal structural fix for this is to use a unified 
      interface for adding a table to a table list 
      (add_table_to_list?) : noted in a TODO comment
      
      2b. The Item::fix_fields() was called with a NULL destination
      pointer. This causes problems in the overloaded ::fix_fields()
      function (namely Item_field::fix_fields()) as it expects a 
      non-zero pointer there. Fixed by passing the source pointer
      similarly to how it's done in JOIN::prepare().

Documented bugfix in the 5.1.37 and 5.4.4 changelogs as follows:

        Accessing a table having user-defined partitioning when the
        server SQL mode included ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY caused the
        MySQL server to crash. For example, the following sequence of
        statements crashed the server:

        DROP TABLE IF EXISTS t1;

        SET SESSION SQL_MODE='ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY';

        CREATE TABLE t1 (id INT, KEY(id))
            PARTITION BY HASH(id) PARTITIONS 2;
