There's a little parameter handling flaw in PDO::getAvailableDrivers(). The function expects no parameter to be passed. If you pass some, it does not bail like most other functions do which do not expect any parameter.

nixnutz@ulflinux:~/php53> sapi/cli/php -r 'var_dump(PDO::getAvailableDrivers("too many", "args")); var_dump(get_include_path("too many", "args"));'
array(4) {
  string(7) "sqlite2"
  string(6) "sqlite"
  string(5) "pgsql"
  string(5) "mysql"

Warning: get_include_path() expects exactly 0 parameters, 2 given in Command line code on line 1

Reproduce code:
nixnutz@ulflinux:~/php53> sapi/cli/php -r 'var_dump(PDO::getAvailableDrivers("too many", "args"));'

Expected result:
Warning: PDO::getAvailableDrivers() expects exactly 0 parameters, 2 given in Command line code on line %d

Actual result:
No warning, array returned

Oh, well forgot to say that for using the test you also have to decide on #44155.
