Cancelling the CancellationToken passed to MySqlConnection.OpenAsync no longer cancels the operation. This is a regression from 8.0.27

How to repeat:
Run the following C# code:

using var connection = new MySqlConnection("...");
using var cts = new CancellationTokenSource();
await connection.OpenAsync(cts.Token); // this throws TaskCanceledException in 8.0.27
Console.WriteLine(connection.State); // prints Open

It is expected that the operation will be cancelled when the token passed to it is cancelled, particularly if it's cancelled before OpenAsync is called.

Suggested fix:
Return to the 8.0.27 behaviour and cancel the OpenAsync operation if the CancellationToken is cancelled.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Connector/NET 8.0.30 release, and here's the proposed changelog entry from the documentation team:

Previously, it was possible to cancel the MySqlConnection.OpenAsync operation if the
CancellationToken object was canceled. This fix restores the original

Thank you for the bug report.
