mysqldump does not support --default-character-set=auto

      Description

      mysql, mysqladmin, mysqlshow and mysqlcheck support a command line option --default-character-set=auto, which means to detect character set from the underlying OS settings (e.g. from the current locale on Unix).

      mysqldump does not support this options and returns an error:

      $ mysqldump --default-character-set=auto
      mysqldump: Character set 'auto' is not a compiled character set and is not specified in the '/usr/share/mariadb/charsets/Index.xml' file
      

      It should be fixed to support "auto", like the other tools do.
