deb packages are using scripts to create /run/mysqld, this is fragile.

The standard method to re-create dirs in /run is include a tmpfiles.d file,
its one available in scripts/systemd/mysqld.tmpfiles.d.in:

use it for deb packages too.

How to repeat:
List files in deb package, no tmpfiles.d file.

Suggested fix:
Ship tmpfiles.d files.

Fixed in 8.0.19.

Debian packages now contain more general systemd support that better
supports manual mysqld execution.
