DatabaseMetadata.java, function private void getCallStmtParameterTypes breaks if parameter is defined in more than one line.

How to repeat:
declaration	"OUT ffact\nVARCHAR(100)" (id=208)	
	count	22	
	hash	0	
	offset	92	
	value	char[246]  (id=178)

Suggested fix:
Trim special characters out.

This will be fixed as a part of fix for Bug#51912.

DatabaseMetaData.java, ~ Ln 1732
	if (declaration.trim().length() == 0) {
		break; // no parameters actually declared, but whitespace spans lines
+	//Bug#52167, tokenizer will break if declaration contains special characters like \n
+	declaration = declaration.replaceAll("[\\t\\n\\x0B\\f\\r]", " ");		
	StringTokenizer declarationTok = new StringTokenizer(
				declaration, " \t");

In the file DatabaseMetadata.java, the function private void getCallStmtParameterTypes failed if the parameter was defined over more than one line by using the '\n' character.
