Szenario Setup:

- A MySQL table with a column TINYINT(4) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0 (lets call it col in the context of this bug report)

- A PDO connection to the MySQL Server with that table that has been set up with these attributes:

$pdo->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_EMULATE_PERPARES, 0);

If you now try to insert a row into that table and pass that column a value of 0 as PDO::PARAM_BOOL, the row is not inserted. PDOStatement::execute() returns false. However, PDOStatement::errorInfo() does not indicate an error and no exception is thrown, regardless of PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE.

NOTE: TINYINT columns are frequently used as boolean columns which is the reason for PDO::PARAM_BOOL.

Test script:
CREATE TABLE `s`.`a` (
  `col` tinyint(4) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0'

$pdo = new PDO("mysql:localhost", "username", "password");

$stmt = $pdo->prepare("INSERT INTO s.a (col) VALUES (?)");
$stmt->bindValue(1, 0, PDO::PARAM_BOOL);


$errorInfo = $stmt->errorInfo();

assertEquals($errorInfo, ["00000", NULL, NULL]);

Expected result:
I expect PDO to throw an exception when PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE is PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION instead of silently returning false from PDOStatement::execute(). 

Actual result:
PDOStatement::execute() sucessfully determines that the statement did not succeed (returns false). However, it does not throw an Exception despite PDO::ATTR_ERRMODE is set to PDO::ERRMODE_EXCEPTION

Same issue as bug #66632, which has been fixed for a while already.
