regarding bug https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5260

after talking with mariadb people and some others, i'm proposing to update 
mysql 5.5.10 to mariadb-5.5.23 in mga1.

however, QA should extra-double-test the php-mysql dependency, as mariadb 
noted that php-mysql seems to have a very strict versioning scheme sometimes 
and having a new mysql provider without rebuilding php-mysql often fails...

in case of no objections, i'll go ahead with this.
