Port ALTER TABLE ... RENAME INDEX from the rnt branch

Registered by Alexey Kopytov on 2013-01-19

The rnt branch contained a featured implementing ALTER TABLE ... RENAME INDEX for InnoDB tables, i.e. the ability to rename indexes without rebuilding the table.

We should port this feature to the main PS branches.

See also bug #1101660.
