InnoDB in 5.5.5 introduced a dependancy on libaio when compiling on Linux.

However, mysql_config does not include '-laio' in the output for '--libmysqld-libs', resulting in linker errors, for example:

  usr/lib/mysql/libmysqld.a(os0file.c.o): In function `os_aio_linux_create_io_ctx':
 rpm/BUILD/mysql-5.5.5-m3/mysql-5.5.5-m3/storage/innobase/os/os0file.c:3125: undefined reference to `io_setup'

This appears to only affect libmysqld, libmysqlclient links ok.

How to repeat:
Build 5.5.5-m3 on Linux and try to link against libmysqld.

Suggested fix:
Something is missing in the CMake configuration to instruct -laio to be included in @LIBS@ or similar.

explanation of the patch attached:

We already use CMake's internal variables <target>_LIB_DEPENDS to calculate flags for the client library. This patch encapsulates the logic of converting LIB_DEPENDS to linker flags in a macro, and uses this macro to generate CLIENT_LIBS and LIBS for client rsp embedded libraries.

Also fixes inappropriate use of @LIBS@ for libs_r variable (that should be @CLIENT_LIBS@)

Applying the patch (to mysql-next-mr-bugfixing) would add -laio to the linker flags for mysqld, as expected.

       --libmysqld-libs [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lmysqld -lpthread -lm -lrt -lcrypt -ldl -laio]
