Description:
If mysqld option is set to the non-existent directory, for example --tmpdir, error message should be written to the error log.

How to repeat:
1. set one of the mysqld option to non-existent directory. --tmpdir
2. start MySQL server
3. check error log, check value of "tmpdir" with SHOW VARIABLES
