Change subject: IMPALA-3586: Implement union passthrough

Commit Message:

Line 15: as a precaution and for testing purposes.
> We made this decision with Alex in person a while ago. There are 2 reasons:
I agree that "blindly" adding query options is bad, but there are so many things that could
go wrong this optimizations. There is the issue of tuple-layout compatibility and of memory
management since we don't materialize any more. If there's a bug or a case we are missing
or even a resource regression (e.g. increased memory consumption), then we have no resource
without this query option.

The alternative is to test this to death until we are 100% confident there are no bugs. Still,
there are cases where we know the passthrough might lead to a higher peak memory consumption.
