MDEV-17609 mysql client sets wrong application name for Readline library

initialize_readline() is called with full pathname of executable which
sets rl_readline_name to that value.

It is expected that rl_readline_name is initialized with static name
not depending on the file name at all. Needed for setting custom
hotkeys in .inputrc
