Client will send handshake response to MySQL server after receiving server greeting packet.

mysqlnd extension adds client attribute "_client_name" as "mysqlnd" in the handshake response packet:

According to MySQL protocol, client should set "CLIENT_CONNECT_ATTRS" bit in its capability flag if any client attribute is added:

However it is never set in handshake response.
The macro is defined here:

For those MySQL servers that strictly follow the protocol, this will cause packet parsing failure.
