Any key, I believe - it's set in add_key_field():

        Save the following cases:
        Field op constant
        Field LIKE constant where constant doesn't start with a wildcard
        Field = field2 where field2 is in a different table
        Field op formula
        Field IS NULL
        Field IS NOT NULL
        Field BETWEEN ...
        Field IN ...

You may see that it's set in make_join_statistics(),
tableB->dependent=tableA, when tableA must be before tableB in the join
order, because of outer join or because of straight join.

Yes. In 4.0 it was the same ulong as table_map, but later we wanted to
allow more than 32 keys per table, so I changed key_map to be an
arbitrary-length bitmap. It's 64 bits (ulonglong) by default, but can be
compiled to use larger bitmaps. Eventually we'll change table_map to use
the same template.
