 High-Level Description
Consider the following case:

SELECT * FROM big_table 
WHERE oe IN (SELECT ie FROM table_with_few_groups
             WHERE ...
             GROUP BY group_col) AND ...

Here the best way to execute the query is:
  
  Materialize the subquery;
  # now run the join:
  for each record R1 in materialized table
    for each record R2 in big_table such that oe=R1
      pass R2 to output

Semi-join materialization supports the inside-out strategy. This WL entry is
about adding support for such strategies for non-semijoin subqueries.


Once WL#89 is done, there will be a cost-based choice between 
Materialization+lookup, Materialization+scan, and IN->EXISTS+lookup strategies.

 High-Level Specification
Basic idea on how this could be achieved:

Pre-optimization phase
----------------------

The rewrite
~~~~~~~~~~~
If we find a subquery predicate that is 
- not processed by current semi-join optimizations
- is an AND-part of the WHERE/ON clause
- can be executed with Materialization

then
- Remove the predicate from WHERE/ON clause
- Add a special JOIN_TAB object instead.

Plan options
~~~~~~~~~~~~
- Use the IN-equality to create KEYUSE elements.

Optimization
------------
- Pre-optimize the subquery so we know materialization cost
- Whenever best_access_path() encounters the "special JOIN_TAB" it should
  consider two strategies:
  A. Materialization and making lookups in the materialized table (if applicable)
  B. Materialization and then scanning the materialized table.


EXPLAIN 
-------
TODO how this will look in EXPLAIN output?

We'll call the new execution strategy "jtbm-materialization", for the lack of
better name.

1. Applicability check
======================
Applicability criteria of jtbm-materialization can be checked at
JOIN::prepare() stage (same as with with semi-join applicability checks)

2. Representation
=================

2.1 Option #1: Convert to TABLE_LIST
------------------------------------
Make it work like semi-join nests: a jtbm-predicate is converted into a
TABLE_LIST object that is injected into select's join tree. This will make it

 - uniform with semi-join processing (and we've stepped on all rakes there)
 - allow to process JTBM-subqueries in LEFT JOINs' ON expressions
   (as TABLE_LIST hierarchy is what is used to encode outer joins)

simplify_joins() will handle jtbm TABLE_LISTs as some kinds of opaque base
tables.

EXPLAIN EXTENDED will display the conversion result as join, that is, for
subquery like

  SELECT ... FROM ot WHERE oe IN (SELECT ie FROM materialized-non-sj-select)

it will print

  SELECT ... FROM ot, <materialize>(SELECT ie FROM materialized-non-sj-select)  

After we've added a TABLE_LIST element, we'll need to remove the subquery
predicate from the WHERE/On clause, in the same way as SJ-converter does it.

TODO: note: we inject a new kind of base table and then next PS re-execution
will re-run name resolution/etc on TABLE_LIST tree that includes this table.
We'll need to make sure that materialized-table doesn't interfere with
anything.

TODO: Separation of steps that need to be done once and steps that need to be
re-done for every PS execution.

2.1.1 On subquery predicate removal
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Q: if we remove the subquery predicate permanently, who will call 
fix_fields() for the oe=ie IN-equality? For semi-joins we don't have this
problem as we inject into ON expression 

(right? or not? we have sj_on_expr, too...
  (Investigation: we the the same Item* pointer both in WHERE and
  as sj_on_expr. fix_fields() is called for the WHERE part and that's 
  how sj_on_expr gets fixed. This works as long as 
  Item_func_eq::fix_fields() does not try to substitute itself with
  another item)
)
A: ?

2.2 Option #2: No TABLE_LIST, convert to JOIN_TAB right away
------------------------------------------------------------
JOIN_TABs only live for the duration of one PS re-execution, so we'll have to 
- make conversion fully undoable
- perform it sufficiently late in the optimization process, at the point 
  where JOIN_TABs are already allocated.

Note that if we don't position JTBM predicates in join's TABLE_LIST tree, then 
it will be impossible to handle JTBM queries inside/outside of outer joins.

Note: if we convert that late, we could remove the subquery predicate in the
same way as remove_eq_conds() removes known-to-be-false AND-parts. 
This operation is undoable.

2.3 Conversion process and its result
-------------------------------------
At the moment, the following is being implemented:

* convert_join_subqueries_to_semijoins() handles both conversions to
  semi-joins (with convert_subq_to_sj()) and to JTBM nests (with 
  convert_subq_to_jtbm()). 
  - This means the process is done in bottom-up way (we walk down into 
    semi-join subselects but not jtbm-selects), with protection against
    exhaustion of table bits beyond #MAX_TABLES, etc.

* convert_subq_to_jtbm() invokes

    subq_predicate->setup_engine()

  which creates the temporary table, and then we use it as the TABLE* object
  that we put into TABLE_LIST::table, JOIN_TAB::table, etc.
  One of the first actions is that we assign it a bit and store it in 
  table->map.
  (Note that this won't work when we add a choice between Materialization and 
   IN->EXISTS)

  (Another option is do like done in FROM optimization: create a 'preliminary'
  TABLE* object which has only some of the fields filled in).

QQ: Do we create/inject IN-equality? why not.. it will be used everywhere
    where needed...

3. Pre-optimization steps
=========================
JOIN_TABs are allocated in make_join_statistics(). For JTBM join_tabs we'll
need:
- run subquery's optimizer to get its output cardinality
- todo what else?

3.1 update_ref_and_keys
-----------------------
Since we've injected the equality into WHERE/ON and created a TABLE* with
appropriate index no special steps are necessary. The regular procedure will
add the needed KEYUSE elements.

3.2 Constant detection
----------------------
* We should not let const table detection code to look at the materialized 
  table, find it to be empty and mark it as constant.

* We also should disallow eq_ref(const)-based detection for materialized table
  That is, if outer_expr is found to be constant, the code should not attempt
  to make a eq_ref(const) lookup in the materialized table.

TODO {
  Second: What about subqueries that "are constant"?
    const_item IN (SELECT uncorrelated) ->  is constant, but not something
      we would want to evaluate at optimization phase.

    something IN (SELECT from_constant_join) -> is constant
    Do we need to mark their JOIN_TABs as constant?)
}

4. Join optimization
====================
Should just work, with exception that we need to make best_access_path not
to use table->stats.records but use JOIN_TAB::records instead (which already
exists and is filled)

NOTE: FROM-optimization does set table->stats.records. Whose approach is
      wrong?

5. Execution
============
We need that:
1. Materialization operation (i.e. execute the subquery and fill the
   materialized temptable) is done at start of execution
2. Materialized table is accessed during execution (either by doing lookups or
   full table scan)
3. IN-equality is checked at the right moment.

#2 is achieved by putting the materialized table into join_tab->table.
#3 is achieved by injecting IN-equality into the WHERE.

for #1, we need to place a call that fills the temptable at the right location.

6. User interface
=================
No @@optimizer_switch flags are planned at the moment. JTBM-materialization
will be controlled by existing materialization=on|off switch.

We could also add a generic materialization_scan=on|off switch.

 Semi-join materialization supports such strategy with SJM-Scan strategy. This WL
 entry is about adding support for such strategies for non-semijoin subqueries.
+
+
+Once WL#89 is done, there will be a cost-based choice between 
+Materialization+lookup, Materialization+scan, and IN->EXISTS+lookup strategies.

+Basic idea on how this could be achieved:
+
+Pre-optimization phase
+----------------------
+
+The rewrite
+~~~~~~~~~~~
+If we find a subquery predicate that is 
+- not processed by current semi-join optimizations
+- is an AND-part of the WHERE/ON clause
+- can be executed with Materialization
+
+then
+- Remove the predicate from WHERE/ON clause
+- Add a special JOIN_TAB object instead.
+
+Plan options
+~~~~~~~~~~~~
+- Use the IN-equality to create KEYUSE elements.
+
+Optimization
+------------
+- Pre-optimize the subquery so we know materialization cost
+- Whenever best_access_path() encounters the "special JOIN_TAB" it should
+  consider two strategies:
+  A. Materialization and making lookups in the materialized table (if applicable)
+  B. Materialization and then scanning the materialized table.
+
+
+EXPLAIN 
+-------
+TODO how this will look in EXPLAIN output?
