We still need this internally to implement Close() and TransferReservationTo(). 

This does do something distinct from either - it releases reservation on all ancestors without
closing it. TransferReservationTo() could only be used to release reservation up to the root.

I don't that is really necessary though for now, so I removed the public interface and updated
tests to use alternative APIs.

is the
             :   //    lowest common ancestor. To transfer, we increase the reservation on
the trackers
             :   //    under 'this', down to 'other'.
> isn't this the only case we need for the distribution of initial reservatio
The third case is the one we need to distribute reservation - the initial reservation can't
be in the query root ReservationTracker since then there's no way to prevent it being used
for non-initial reservations. It needs to be in a separate "initial reservation" tracker that
is a child of the query tracker (e.g. the distribution would be the same as "aunt"->"child"
in the unit test).

Now that I think about it, I think the underlying problem is the same as the scenario you
mention - some ExecNodes won't claim their reservation until after the query has started executing,
which means that in the meantime the ExecNodes initial reservation needs to be stored somewhere,
then transferred.
