We did several other COMMENT syntaxes - this one seems still missing.

@hueypark interested? :)

41555: sql: support `COMMENT ON INDEX` r=jordanlewis a=hueypark

Informs #41316.

This patch introduces support for index comments.

The syntax to set or delete a comment is the same as postgres:
`COMMENT ON INDEX ... IS ...`. See:

Release note (sql change): CockroachDB now supports associating
comments to SQL index using PostgreSQL's `COMMENT ON INDEX`.
This comment can be checked with the `SHOW INDEXES FROM ... WITH COMMENT` command.
