It's not possible to use elliptic curve certs/ciphers for SSL pdo_mysql connection

Actual result:
I'm running php 7.2.7 on linux

	php -v
		PHP 7.2.7-dev (cli) (built: Jun 23 2018 08:57:14) ( NTS )

		Zend Engine v3.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2018 Zend Technologies

pdo exts are built with config


openssl is

	openssl version
		OpenSSL 1.1.0h  27 Mar 2018

sql/ssl extensions loaded include

	php -m |egrep "pdo|ssl|sql"

My DB is

	mariadb_config --version --tlsinfo --socket
		OpenSSL 1.1.0h

I use driver == pdo_mysql for connections in a Symfony4+Doctrine app.

Without SSL, connections work as expected -- both from within app via pdo, and from shell using native mysql client

Adding SSL to the mix, from shell using native mysql client, works

	mysql \
	 -h localhost \
	 -u ${DBUSER} \
	 --password=${DBPASS} \
	 --ssl-ca=${SSL_CA_CERT} \
	 --ssl-cert=${SSL_CERT} \
	 --ssl-key=${SSL_PRIVKEY} \
	 --ssl-cipher=${SSL_CIPHERS} \
	 --ssl-verify-server-cert \

But, using same ENV (certs, privkey, cipherspec), with key config in PHP app,

    !php/const:PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CA:     '%env(SSL_CA_CERT)%'
    !php/const:PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CERT:   '%env(SSL_CERT)%'
    !php/const:PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_KEY:    '%env(SSL_PRIVKEY)%'
    !php/const:PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_SSL_CIPHER: '%env(SSL_CIPHERS)%'

on attempt to connect from within app, e.g., on exec of

	bin/console doctrine:phpcr:init:dbal --force

fails, returning

	In AbstractMySQLDriver.php line 112:
	  An exception occurred in driver: SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002]  

	In PDOConnection.php line 50:
	  SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002]

	In PDOConnection.php line 46:
	  SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002]

	In PDOConnection.php line 46:
	  PDO::__construct(): this stream does not support SSL/crypto

The notable error being

	"PDO::__construct(): this stream does not support SSL/crypto"

Digging around, this is apparently due to a lack of EC support in pdo_mysql.

My certs/keys are EC, and my cipher spec is limited to


which is widely/consistently used across all our internal servers & services.

Apparently, EC support was added long ago for ext/openssl
