Bug #77972 Many procedural-style mysqli_ functions that exist don't show up in search a...

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to
2. In the search box, type "mysqli_free"

Expected result:
below the box, at least the result "mysqli_free_result" should show up as a suggestion, given that the function mysqli_free_result() exists.

Actual result:
It doesn't.

Yet if you write it completely on your own, it'll be found, because it does exist.

This doesn't happen with all mysqli_* functions, just some of them.

Pathetic as usual.

BTW there are a few similar reports that describe most probably related issues  with searching mysqli_* functions, but none of them clearly describe this specific issue, that is the one with the autocomplete.
So I'm reporting this as a separate bug, but feel free to merge. (please do fix it though, these issues have been known for years!)
