Patch Set 3:

File fe/src/main/java/org/apache/impala/analysis/

Line 1029:   public boolean isBoundByTupleIds(List<TupleId> tids) {
> While consistency is nice, I'd rather keep this fix small and contained.
I don't think consistency is just "nice" here. The isBound() family of functions is a core
FE concept that we rely on in many places. It's bad if someone else reading the code cannot
understand the meaning or gets confused due to inconsistency. These little inconsistencies
have a tendency to cause other problems in the future.

We are introducing this inconsistency for a rather minor bugfix, which I think is the wrong

If the goal of this patch is to fix IMPALA-5180 specifically, then it's simpler to have HdfsPartitionPruner.prunePartitions()

if (conjunct.isBoundBySlotIds(partitionSlots_) && !conjunct.contains(Expr.IS_NONDETERMINISTIC_BUILTIN_FN_PREDICATE))
  // Use conjunct for partition pruning

and not change the meaning of isBoundBySlotIds()
