      Description

      If I attempt to change s system versioning column on a non-empty table, I get this:

      create or replace table t1 (i int, vers_start TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START, vers_end TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW END, PERIOD FOR SYSTEM_TIME(vers_start,vers_end)) engine=MyISAM with system versioning;
      insert into t1 values (1);
      set versioning_alter_history=KEEP;
      alter table t1 CHANGE COLUMN `vers_start` `sys_trx_start` TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START;
      

      ERROR 4140 (HY000): Can not modify column `vers_start` to GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START/END for non-empty table
      

      But if I do the same on an empty table, I still get an error:

      create or replace table t1 (i int, vers_start TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START, vers_end TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW END, PERIOD FOR SYSTEM_TIME(vers_start,vers_end)) engine=MyISAM with system versioning;
      set versioning_alter_history=KEEP;
      alter table t1 CHANGE COLUMN `vers_start` `sys_trx_start` TIMESTAMP(6) GENERATED ALWAYS AS ROW START;
      

      ERROR 4137 (HY000): Can not change system versioning field `vers_start`
      

      So, the first error appears to be meaningless.
