Good catch! Thanks for your kindly reminder! I'll remove it.

Yes, I think qsort is better choice than copy-paste here. But qsort does
not support customized swap func, which is needed for ORC unwind swap
two tables together.
I think it's hard to do with qsort, so I used sort same with original
orc unwind table sort.
