    HAWQ-621. Fixing tuple descriptor leak in split_rows during an ALTER TABLE SPLIT PARTITION.

    During split_rows, we may create new tuple table slot inside reconstructMatchingTupleSlot()
if the descriptor of the new target relation does not match the source relation. We then cache
this slot inside the target relation's ri_resultSlot. This process pins the tuple descriptor
of the new target relation. However, at the end of split_rows, when we are finished with this
"cached" tuple table slot, we don't free them. This results in a WARNING that we leaked a
tuple descriptor.
    Following the call path of split_rows, the method split_rows() is only called from 
    split_rows(Relation, Relation, Relation) : void
    	ATPExecPartSplit(Relation *, AlterPartitionCmd *) : void
    		ATExecCmd(List * *, AlteredTableInfo *, Relation *, AlterTableCmd *) : void
    			ATPExecPartAlter(List * *, AlteredTableInfo *, Relation, AlterPartitionCmd *) : void
    			ATRewriteCatalogs(List * *) : void
    By the time we call split_rows, we know precisely the two relation where we will be inserting
into. We create ResultRelInfo for both of these relations (the two target relations) at the
beginning of split_rows(), called rria, and rrib. Both of these ResultRelInfo only have lifespan
of the containing method split_rows(). We use the ri_resultSlot of these two rria and rrib
to cache the TupleTableSlot inside reconstructMatchingTupleSlot() where we create additional
TupleTableSlot using the tuple descriptors of the two target relations, therefore pinning
these two target relation's TupleDesc. As the rria and rrib only live during split_rows()
and only used for all the tuples in ONE CALL of split_rows(), we can easily drop the additional
TupleTableSlot ri_resultSlot of both rria and rrib, and that will also unpin underlying TupleDesc.
