      Description

      audit log will not rotate when the file size exceeds global variable setting

      Setting server_audit_file_rotate_now = ON does work though.

      To reproduce, try setting server_audit_events = 'connect' and server_audit_file_rotate_size = 1000. Then connect with a bad password about 20 times:

      for i in {1..20}; do mysql -ufail -pfail; done

      Notice that the server_audit.log file does not rotate even though its size is 2700 bytes when the rotate size is 1000 bytes.

      Same can be said about 2 more variables:
      server_audit_file_rotations
      server_audit_syslog_ident

      We should fix them alltogether.
