      Description

      There are a lot of generic helpers with missing TYPE_CHAR support. We need to add char to those. The tuple layout is identical to TYPE_FIXED_UDA_INTERMEDIATE and the UDF StringVal type is used the same as TYPE_STRING, so mostly this requires using those code paths for CHAR and doing appropriate testing to ensure that it works (the random query generator may help here!).

      E.g.
