stack-trace is enabled by default. You will not get the stack trace if

"disable" or "skip" are prefixes recognized for all boolean options.

--disable-xxx is the same as --skip-xxx and the same as --xxx=0

--gdb option tells MariaDB not to install signal handlers, which is

will break you in the debugger.

But --gdb is disabled by default, so --disable-gdb normally does not do
