I cannot review that change, I don't know sql_expression_cache code :(
Anyway, you asked me to look at the "incorrect heap table index flags"
changes only.

Difficult to say.

Sure, temporary tables should have keyinfo->flags=HA_NOSAME and
keyinfo->flags|= HA_NULL_ARE_EQUAL. You can see that in
create_tmp_table(). HA_GENERATED_KEY has no effect, so it doesn't matter
if you specify it or not.

But I don't know what are requirements for temporary tables in your
subquery cache code.

Unrelated question - why did you duplicate creation of temporary
tables? I understand that you may've needed something slightly different
from create_tmp_table(), but then you should've changed
create_tmp_table() to use your new code, TABLE::add_tmp_key() etc.

By the way, if you had done that (reused the code, not duplicated it)
this bug would've been impossible - many tests in the test suite would
fail at once if all temporary tables would have non-unique indexes.
