      Bug#35164: Large number of invalid pthread_attr_setschedparam calls
      Bug#37536: Thread scheduling causes performance degradation at low thread count
      
      Deprecated --skip-thread-priority startup option as newer versions of
      the server won't change the thread priorities by default.
      
      Giving threads different priorities might yield marginal improvements
      in some platforms (where it actually works) but on the other hand it
      might cause significant degradation depending on the thread count and
      number of processors. Meddling with the thread priorities is a not a
      safe bet as it is very dependent on the behavior of the cpu scheduler
      and system where MySQL is being run.
      
      From MySQL 6.0 and up the default behavior is that of not modifying
      the threads priorities.
