Allow instant VARCHAR increase of indexed fields

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      Index data is not changed in ALGORITHM=INSTANT so it's safe to perform such operation on indexes field.

      Similar case is in MDEV-15564 where charset can be changed for indexes field from f.ex utf8mb3 to utf8mb4. And this issue is primary needed for MDEV-15564 to solve a problem on SQL level.

      Every storage engine which supports INPLACE ALTER can benefit from it. But right now only InnoDB supports IS_EQUAL_PACK_LENGTH so this change is for InnoDB.
