Gap locks detection

Percona Server for MySQL has implemented Gap locks detection in Percona Server for MySQL 5.7.18-14 based on a Facebook MySQL patch.

If a transactional storage engine does not support gap locks (for example MyRocks) and a gap lock is being attempted while the transaction isolation level is either REPEATABLE READ or SERIALIZABLE, the following SQL error will be returned to the client and no actual gap lock will be taken on the effected rows.

ERROR HY000: Using Gap Lock without full unique key in multi-table or multi-statement transactions is not allowed. You need to either rewrite queries to use all unique key columns in WHERE equal conditions, or rewrite to single-table, single-statement transaction.
