Running the main.comment_column2 test case with compression results in this:

mysqld: net_serv.cc:897: size_t net_read_packet(NET*, size_t*): Assertion `net->where_b + 4 + sizeof(uint32) <= net->max_packet + 4 + 3' failed.

How to repeat:
Build in debug mode

mtr --compress main.comment_column2

Suggested fix:
Unsure, will need more investigation.

Looks like the root cause is this commit: https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/commit/724f8e8389ae0fa2930b1402fbb50cbecacbe985

If we no longer require an extra byte for uint3korr, then the assert should have been removed because it's just checking for the extra byte. At best, we should just assert net->where_b < net->max_packet.

I meant net->where_b <= net->max_packet in my last comment.

Fixed in 8.0.11.

With protocol compression enabled, a spurious assertion could be
