Description:
With group replication, when a node is partitioned, you can still read from it

(This is a feature request that is related to the bug https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=84727)

How to repeat:
- get GR cluster up and running
- do 'ifconfig eth0 down' on a node, effectively partitioning it
- do a select

Suggested fix:
add a variable to block reads from succeeding on partitioned nodes.
