Dear maintainers,

The latest version of ruby-em-synchrony fails to build in Ubuntu, because it
invokes mysql_install_db --force --skip-name-resolve as part of the build,
but these are options that are only understood by the mariadb implementation
of mysql_install_db and Ubuntu's default-mysql-server is configured to mysql
instead of mariadb.

Since this server is only needed at build-time for testing, I don't think it
makes sense to put much effort into making debian/
implementation-agnostic.  Instead, I think ruby-em-synchrony should just
build-depend on mariadb-server directly.

I've uploaded this change to Ubuntu, using the attached trivial patch. 
Please consider including this change in Debian as well.
