[slurm-users] Do not upgrade mysql to 5.7.30!

and I found the reason. Seems that (at least for the mysql procedure 
get_parent_limits) mySQL 5.7.30 returns NULL where mySQL 5.7.29 returned 
an empty string.

Running mySQL < 5.7.30 is a bad idea, as there exist two remotely 
exploitable bugs with a CVSS score of 9.8!

(see also https://www.cbronline.com/news/oracle-security-patches)

So, this needs to get fixed soon.
