The fix for Bug#48528 'Unable to use 7.0 ndbapi/mysqld with 6.3 data-nodes' allows 7.0 NdbApi nodes (including MySQLD) to connect to a cluster with 6.3 data nodes, as long as the ndb_mgmd node is at version 7.0.

However, 7.0 NdbApi nodes are unable to connect to a cluster with 6.3 data nodes and a 6.3 ndb_mgmd node.  The connection process fails with a timeout.

This should be resolved.  

How to repeat:
Create 6.3 cluster.

Attempt to connect a 7.0 NdbApi application to it.

Suggested fix:
Detect ndb_mgmd version from 7.0 API.  Modify use of MGMAPI protocol to suit.

Proposed patch changes 'get config' and 'start backup' MGMAPI commands to check MGMD version before sending argument sets not supported in previous versions.
