review request for two patches related to serde-reported schemas
Hey hive gurus -

Would it be possible for a committer to take a look at the following two issues?

"Hive should expand nested structs when setting the table schema from
thrift structs"
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2941

"Hive should store the full table schema in partition storage descriptors"
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HIVE-2950
DETAILS:

The general issue is handling serde-reported schemas. If the
serde-reported structure contains nested structures they are not
expanded, causing downstream issues for HCatalog & not fully
describing the table for users browsing schemas. Also, the partition
schema does not have serde-reported fields copied to its storage
descriptor causing issues.

Serde-reported schemas are super useful, and these two patches should
make it even better. The issues themselves have far more details,
including examples of current & proposed behavior.

Thanks!
Travis
