Bug description:
  In MySQL 8.0 we (Oracle) are adding a plugin to rate-limit/throttle
  login attempts in order to stop brute-force attacks.

  Since this is a security mechanism that has been requested by users,
  we would also like to backport this plugin to MySQL 5.6 and 5.7.

  After consulting with Robie Basak (racb), we understand this change to
  be allowed in Ubuntu under the SRU process (Sect. 2.2,
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates), but if there are any
  comments or objections, we'd like to hear them now.

  
  Impact
  ======

  This functionality is implemented in a plugin. The plugin is not
  loaded, and the functionality will not be activated unless the DBA
  explicitly activates it.

  
  Regression potential
  ====================

  The potential for regression is considered low for the following
  reasons:

   - The new functionality is in a plugin that 1) is not loaded by
     default, and 2) can be unloaded if it causes problems.

   - The change does not introduce new SQL syntax, and no existing
     syntax is affected.

   - The plugin is new, so it's not used by any other packages in
     Ubuntu.
