      Description

      I know that passing a negative timeout to GET_LOCK() makes no sense. But if you do it by mistake (perhaps with dynamic sql) there are 2 cases:

      • If the number is high, it is like passing 0:

        MariaDB [(none)]> SELECT GET_LOCK('x', -100);
        +---------------------+
        | GET_LOCK('x', -100) |
        +---------------------+
        |                   0 |
        +---------------------+
        1 row in set (0.01 sec)

      • if number is very low, it considers it as a positive number (you will need to kill the query):

        SELECT GET_LOCK('x', -1500000000);

        In both cases, I get no errors or warnings.
