All information required to properly handle a streamed backup should be in the meta directory of the backup. This however is not used. So the user is forced to use the correct uncompress and innodb options. This is error-prone.

Related: Bug #71887

How to repeat:
Try to stream a backup as documented on http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-enterprise-backup/3.11/en/meb-backup-streaming.html

Suggested fix:
So at the start of the stream there should be meta info. The receiver should use this info to find the correct options for its operation.
