Allow to turn off max_connect_errors
there are apparently some tools out there , that check if the server
is up quite often, while not closing the connection properly. It
eventually ends in 'many connection errors', because max_connect_errors
is always limited now.
I understand that this way of checking may be wrong, but there may be
scenarios where we do not want to check for `max_connect_errors` at all.
So, would it be acceptable for mariadb to change behaviour of
max_connect_errors option, so that it accepts also 0 as a possible
value, which would mean 'do not check connect errors at all'?
I'm bringing the idea here first, but will submit a report and possibly
patch if it does not seem to be undesired behaviour.
TIA and regards,
