The following query:
UPDATE `PP_H` SET `varchar_5` = 'z' WHERE ( ( ( `PP_H` . `varchar_5` >= 'j' ) OR `PP_H` . `varchar_5`  IN ('q', 'r' ) ) OR `PP_H` . `int_signed`  BETWEEN 3 AND ( 3 + 8 ) );

On the table below (used in test case) will fail via 'no partition for that value' error despite the UPDATE'd value being within the defined partitions and will crash via segfault on Innodb.  The provided test case works perfectly on MyISAM.

Partition setup used: (full table in the test case)
 /*!50100 PARTITION BY range column_list(varchar_5, varchar_10)
subpartition by hash ( year(`date`))
subpartitions 2 (
 partition p0 values less than (column_list('m','m')),
partition p1 values less than (column_list('za','za'))) */;

Partial crash output (full output attached as separate file):

How to repeat:
MTR test case is attached.

Please alter the ENGINE='' clause and observe how the test case performs:
MYISAM: pass
MEMORY:  No partition for that value ('z')
Innodb: Crash via segfault

Suggested fix:
Ensure crash-free, correct query processing

MTR test case.  Alter engine settings for different behavior (MEMORY and InnoDB)

create table t1 (a varchar(5))
partition by range column_list(a)
( partition p0 values less than (column_list('m')),
  partition p1 values less than (column_list('za')));
insert into t1 values  ('j');
update t1 set a = 'z' where (a >= 'j');

The above test case is the minimum test case generating this bug.
The problem is that conversion in my_strnxfrm used the wrong length
which led to an erroneus comparison between partition fields and
record value. This was only for character set fields.

There was another bug lurking in this same area, where I compared
a my_strnxfrm-converted value with a field in standard format, not
so good. Need to fix this also as part of this bug fix.

      BUG#47776, Fixed character set handling, used wrong length, eventually also found that didn't need to convert to my_strnxfrm-format for column list partitioned tables, also column list partitioned tables can use multi-byte character sets in partition fields as well as where strxfrm multiplies the number of bytes in the string
