When mysqld is started with a user != root and memory should be allocated with memlock NO warning is displayed. The memory is just allocated normally.

This could be not wanted...

How to repeat:
start mysql with a user != root (for example mysql) and with memlock in my.cnf

Suggested fix:
at least a warning should be written to the error log file
