Description:
CMake 2.8.12 is currently the oldest version we use when building MySQL 8.0.
Older versions are not tested and should be considered unsupported.
We should therefore raise the minimum required CMake version to 2.8.12

This also allows us to remove workarounds for behavior deprecated in newer CMake versions,
which will prevent MySQL building from breaking once the deprecated behavior is removed
from new CMake versions.

CMake 2.8.12 was released in October 2013.
