question about fast path for TRUNCATE TABLE


This started as a question on a MyRocks list. MyRocks comes from MariaDB in
this case and the code that determines whether the truncate table fast path
is used looks different in MariaDB than in FB MySQL. By "fast path" for
truncate I mean the use of drop/recreate for truncate. The slow path is
delete one row at a time. In this case, truncate is doing delete one row at
a time for MyRocks in MariaDB but drop/recreate in FB MySQL.
