Description:
MySQL EE(Enterprise Edition) provided the Keyring feature in MySQL 5.7 or later.

But they mentioned in MySQL 5.5 and 5.6 manual as belows, and linked MySQL 5.7 manual.

o MySQL Enterprise Edition includes a keyring plugin that uses Oracle Key Vault as a back end for keyring storage. For more information, see The MySQL Keyring. 

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/mysql-enterprise-security.html
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-enterprise-security.html

Please omit this sentence from these MySQL 5.5/5.6 manual !

"MySQL Enterprise Edition includes a keyring plugin that uses Oracle Key Vault as a back end for keyring storage. For more information, see The MySQL Keyring." 

How to repeat:
See this section of MySQL 5.5, 5.6's manual.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/mysql-enterprise-security.html
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/mysql-enterprise-security.html

Suggested fix:
Remove this sentence from MySQL 5.5/5.6's manual.

"MySQL Enterprise Edition includes a keyring plugin that uses Oracle Key Vault as a back end for keyring storage. For more information, see The MySQL Keyring."

MySQL Enterprise Masking is also supported in MySQL 5.7 or later,
So should be removed these page from MySQL 5.5/5.6 manual.

The same content is included into the reference manual for every MySQL series, so, rather than remove anything, I have amended descriptions of features not present in all series to indicate the initial series in which they occur.
