support for mysql cleartext plugin

Description

MySQL has a client side plugin to prevent password hashing. This is required when using PAM authentication.

From the documentation -
The mysql_options() C API function supports a MYSQL_ENABLE_CLEARTEXT_PLUGIN option that enables the plugin on a per-connection basis.

Is there something similar in MariaDB. Using the same option gives an error.
