this is a bit misleading. I agree it's completely broken, though :)
But not "this table pointer", because, of course it persists with a
global access and can be overwritten and so on. This is by design, it's
protected by mysql_table_query_id.
The problem is that table (dict_table_t) argument of
innodb_find_table_for_vc() points to a shared data structure, not thread
local, as I believed. So vc_templ is shared too.
I suggest to rewrite the comment like
vc_templ->mysql_table concept is completely broken.
table argument of innodb_find_table_for_vc() points to a shared data
structure dict_table_t, and thus vc_templ is shared too and cannot
be used for a thread-local cache.

Is this upd_node_t::prebuilt used anywhere? As a prebuilt, I mean.
I couldn't find it (it's a complex patch, so I couldn've missed it).
As far as I can see, it's only used to store a pointer to TABLE.
So it seems to me than a simpler fix for this bug could be:
* remove vc_templ caching (mysql_table and mysql_table_query_id)
* store TABLE* in upd_node_t.
