Hi, sorry for creating another useless bugreport, but I haven't ability to comment bugs in CLOSED state.

[Considering bug reports #23779 and #28632 and mainly lines 601-604 in ext/mysql/php_mysql.c]

/* disable local infile option for open_basedir */
if (PG(open_basedir) && strlen(PG(open_basedir)) && (client_flags & CLIENT_LOCAL_FILES)) {
	client_flags ^= CLIENT_LOCAL_FILES;

Are you, PHP developers, sure that the approach "So, let's check bit 7. Oh, it is set, uhm, so, let's read it, make a negation and the write it back" the best way? Shouldn't be better (and also more elegant, faster,...) to write something like:

if (PG(open_basedir) && strlen(open_basedir)) {
	client_flags &= ~CLIENT_LOCAL_FILES;

This is a non issue, the code avoids touching the mask if there is nothing to change in it.

I know that your code works, but there is other solution which is more readable, more elegant, faster and more C-like IMHO.
Of course you can write your code, say, without indentation, and it *will* compile and work (the compilation time could be even a bit faster due to reduced preprocessor overhead), but most of people simply don't do it as it is considered "bad programming style".
