Description:
------------
PDOStatement::getColumnMeta() doesn't return native_type for JSON type columns (i suppose it should be "string"). 


Test script:
---------------
$DB=new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=test','user','pass');
$DB->exec('CREATE TABLE `test` (`a` JSON)');
$DB->exec("INSERT INTO `test` VALUES('[]')");
$statement=$DB->query('SELECT `a` FROM `test`');
$meta=$statement->getColumnMeta(0);

var_dump(isset($meta['native_type']));

Expected result:
----------------
bool(true)

Actual result:
--------------
bool(false)

PHP is testing for the field type (reported by MySQL) using a variety of #defined FIELD_TYPE_* constants:
https://github.com/php/php-src/blob/PHP-7.2.22/ext/pdo_mysql/mysql_statement.c#L781
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/mysql__com_8h.html (Ctrl+F)
Note there is no constant for JSON. No constant means PHP can't identify the type.

However those FIELD_TYPEs are aliases for MYSQL_TYPE_* constants:
https://dev.mysql.com/doc/dev/mysql-server/latest/field__types_8h.html
In that list there is a JSON type; it's documented as "used for replication only" but it seems like other projects are using it.

Perhaps pdo_mysql should switch to using the MYSQL_TYPEs?
