Subject: change column type of orc table will throw exception in query time

cannot be cast to" ) in query time, this
is different behavior from hive (using other file format), where it will
try to perform cast (null value in case of incompatible type).

partitioned table.I think this behavior is unexpected and I'm digging into
the code to find a way to fix it now. Any help is appreciated.

I use the following script to test it with partitioned table on branch-0.13:

use test;
and it throw exception with branch-0.13:
