Is there any chance we can get a per THD MEM_ROOT? There is not one
today so allocations for Security_context use the global pool (malloc)
and then there is a need for Security_context::destroy. For the roles
support I have added I want to assign a string to
Security_context::priv_user that may require deallocation. It is
tricky to remember when that may be done because empty constant
strings are assigned to it ("") and non-empty constant strings are
assigned to it ("DELAYED" for delayed inserts). The current behavior
for priv_user is that it never requires deallocation.
I will probably solve my problem by adding a buffer into
Security_context and using that buffer so I can avoid allocation.
