      Description

      I can disable the the ability to use symbolic links for files by setting skip-symbolic-links

      I can test that this condition is on with the following query:

      select @@have_symlink;
      +----------------+
      | @@have_symlink |
      +----------------+
      | DISABLED       |
      +----------------+
      

      This setting does not prevent the use of symbolic links. I have tested symbolic links for subdirectories of datadir and for individual files. I have tested the following versions:

      • 10.5.12-8-MariaDB-enterprise
      • 10.6.4-1-MariaDB-enterprise
      • 10.5.12-MariaDB-1:10.5.12+maria~buster (community)
