Description:
SHOW STATUS is reporting 'locked_in_memory', but in the config it is set with 'memlock' which is completely inconsistent.

SHOW STATUS is reporting myisam_recovery_options, but in the config it is set with myisam_recover, which is again inconsistent.

How to repeat:
Read the manual and try:

[mysqld]
locked_in_memory
myisam_recovery_options = FORCE,BACKUP

does not work.

SHOW STATUS LIKE "memlock" does report nothing.
SHOW STATUS LIKE "myisam_recover" does report nothing.

Suggested fix:
Unify this by changing the option names, but allow the old traditional option names for a release or so as deprecated.
