Description:
Currently --early-plugin-load defaults to "keyring_file". It should default to empty.

How to repeat:
Start the server, observe the value of --early-plugin-load

Suggested fix:
Set the default to an empty string instead of "keyring_file".

Noted in 5.7.12, 5.8.0 changelogs.

Previously, the default value of the --early-plugin-load option named 
the keyring_file plugin object file. Now the default value is empty.
Because InnoDB tablespace encryption requires this plugin to be
loaded prior to InnoDB initialization, administrators who want
keyring_file loaded at startup should use the appropriate nonempty
option value. Alternatively, use INSTALL PLUGIN to install it
permanently.
