counter cache can be set as optional

Reported by krzys (at kristoff) | April 15th, 2009 @ 04:03 PM | in 3.x

probl: we have to models: class Tagging < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :taggable, :polymorphic => true, :counter_cache => true end

class Item < ActiveRecord::Base has_one :tagging, :as => :taggable end

In this situation, any other associations of Tagging are fine (as long as they have counter column). There is no need to have it on Item, but it throws: Exception raised: Class: <ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid> Message: <"Mysql::Error: Unknown column 'taggings_count' in 'field list': UPDATE items SET taggings_count = COALESCE(taggings_count, 0) + 1 WHERE (id = 2) ">

(it's in the test in attached patch)

This patch fixes that, allowing user to specify :counter_cache_optional => true

The default behavior is unaltered. Tested for MySQl and SQLite3 but should make no difference on db layer anyway.
