galera_new_cluster and galera_recovery scripts from Debian

The official Debian (and possible other OS) packages for MariaDB 10.x include a pair of scripts to help with managing Galera clusters. These would be handy for the FreeBSD port, since there appears to be no other officially documented way to bootstrap a Galera cluster with the FreeBSD binaries. 

Alternatively, some OSes have the "service mysql bootstrap" command, but there is no "service mysql-server bootstrap" command on the FreeBSD port.

The official docs for MariaDB also list "mysqld --wsrep-new-cluster" as the direct method to start a new cluster, however FreeBSD only has the mysqld_safe binary, and not mysqld (it works the same way, but will be confusing to new users)

For the bootstrap functionality I got part of the rc.d script of mysql and it works fine: 


       # Bootstrap the cluster, start the first node that initiate the cluster
       check_startmsgs && echo "Bootstrapping cluster"
       command_args="$command_args --wsrep-new-cluster"
       run_rc_command ${_rc_prefix}start

Put this one into your /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server 

Then you can do bootstrap on your cluster with the rc.d script. 

This however has to be ported into the package.

Hi Vincent,

These look like useful additions, but they're ridden with Linux-isms. Can you fix these to actually work with FreeBSD? `systemctl` sounds like systemd and luckily we have none of that. /usr/sbin/mysqld is not where we will ever install the port, ...

Cheers, Bernard.
