Description:
Doc says "You can set the maximum size that can be specified for the query cache at runtime with the SET statement by using the --maximum-query_cache_size=32M option on the command line or in the configuration file.", but that option cannot be set.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/query-cache-configuration.html

How to repeat:
# yum install -y http://dev.mysql.com/get/mysql57-community-release-el6-7.noarch.rpm
# yum install -y mysql-community-server
# echo "maximum_query_cache_size= 128M" >> /etc/my.cnf
# service mysqld start
