Description:
When the socket option is relative in my.cnf, the CentOS startup script print the following message:

Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.

But MySQL is started.

How to repeat:
Set the socket option in my.cnf to a relative path, and do "service mysqld start".

Noted in 5.5.41, 5.6.22, 5.7.6 changelogs.

On CentOS 6, specifying a relative path name for the --socket option
caused MySQL startup script failure.
