With the split between Enterprise and Community, there can be expected to be some divergence between the two products.  Therefore, --version should identify whether the binary is an Enterprise or Community binary as well as the version number.

For example, a 5.0.30 binary (from after the split) needs to identify which branch of development it is from.

How to repeat:
$ ./mysqld --version
./mysqld  Ver 5.0.30 for pc-linux-gnu on i686 (Source distribution)

or (different directory)
$  ./mysqld --version
./mysqld  Ver 5.0.27 for pc-linux-gnu on i686 (Source distribution)

Suggested fix:
Add an indication to the --version output indicating that the binary is either Enterprise or Community.

Looks to be working on 5.7:

$ ./mysqld --version
/opt/mysql/5.7.18/bin/mysqld  Ver 5.7.18 for linux-glibc2.5 on x86_64 (MySQL Community Server (GPL))
