Bug Description

When I try to upgrade from 5.0.16 to 6.0, I get the following error:

psycopg2.ProgrammingError: relation "hr_employee_parent_id_index" already exists

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new database in 5.0 with no sample data and the manufacturing industry profile.
2. Leave the default values for all the setup steps, and set the chart of accounts to "None".
3. Create a new product category called "All Products".
4. Create a new product called "paperclip", and use the category you just created.
5. Run the migration using the options, "--update all --stop-after-init". The error occurs as listed above.

The full command line I use for the migration is as follows:
python --database migrationtest --update all --stop-after-init --addons ~/upgrade-addons-6.0 --config ~/openerp-server.config

I only see this error after applying my fix for bug 1023164.

In addons/hr/migrations/, it renames the parent_id column to openupgrade_legacy_parent_id, but doesn't rename the index. When the regular migration adds a new parent_id column, it also tries to add the index, but fails when the index already exists.
The old index should either be dropped or renamed when the column is renamed.
