would it be possible to include the patch from fedora in a way that mysql can be compiled with it using a additional switch to get ready for systemd (now fedora, other distributions will include it over the time too) and get the current discussions on fedora-bugtrackers and mailing-lists cleard?


How to repeat:
* use a distribution with systemd
* start mysqld with a native systemd.service
* look at warnings of services rely on mysqld ready for connections

Suggested fix:
give distributions a option to compile mysqld with native support so systemd can answer connections from clients while mysqld is initalizing
