      Description

      For MySQL compatibility and simply because it's better MariaDB should change the terminology and code around "virtual columns" as follows:

      • use "generated", not "virtual" or "computed" in error messages
      • use GENERATED ALWAYS AS in SHOW CREATE TABLE
      • use STORED, not PERSISTENT
      • show VIRTUAL GENERATED and STORED GENERATED (not PERSISTENT) in SHOW FIELDS
      • update the manual accordingly
      • rename ER_.... constants accordingly (but keep compatibility aliases)
      • this task does not cover changing the code, like renaming methods and variables
