WL#5369: Remove --optimizer_search_depth=63
Affects: Server-5.6 — Status: Complete — Priority: Medium
Remove the specific value 63 for the variable optimizer_search_depth. Worklog 5252 deprecated this functionality, and this WL is created to follow up deprecation with actual removal.
Remove the specific value 63 for optimizer_search_depth, which enables the old optimizer behavior. The related function find_best() will also be removed. Related bug cases: BUG#50052 reports a regression in 6.0, --optimizer_search_depth=63 crashes. We can close this as "will not fix" if we deprecate this behavior in 5.1 and 5.5, and remove it in 6.0 (presuming that 6.0 will be the next major release after 5.5).
