This issue is still open, as is the upstream issue

I would be happy to review some proof-of-concept how you would
implement this if you can.

Maintaining MariaDB in Debian requires a lot of work and if you find
this package important, please contribute by helping fix this bug.
Also, if you test out current MariaDB 10.3 in Debian and find any new
issues, please "scratch your own itch" and help out by fixing them.

The preferred way of submitting contributions is as merge requests on
Debian's Salsa system:

If you are not an open source contributor yourself, please consider
paying somebody else to contribute to issues that are important for
you/your business.
