Description:
Mysqld_safe can be told to log to the syslog facility with --syslog.

In syslog we have the concept of priorities which relate to different channels (see man logger).

Unfortunately we cannot configure these channels in the configuration file my.cnf.

How to repeat:
n.a.

Suggested fix:
Add parameters like --syslog-facility and --syslog-level or/and --syslog-priority="syslog-facility.syslog-level" to mysqld_safe.
