mysql: do not use unsafe TRUNCATE statement
TRUNCATE was chosen for performance reasons, but it's usually done on small tables, and not for performance-critical operations. TRUNCATE commits implicitely, so for pt/ttrans in particular, it's certainly slower due to extra fsyncs to disk. On the other side, committing too early can corrupt the database if the storage node is stopped just after. For example, a failure in changePartitionTable() can cause 'pt' to remain empty.
