Comment (by peterwilsoncc):

 Replying to [comment:15 jrf]:
 > @costdev did some testing regarding the non-nullablility and got
 confusing results, so I've now actually [https://github.com/php/php-
 checked the PHP source] and turns out the parameters **ARE** nullable and
 that the PHP manual is either wrong or just plain confusing.

 Is it possible, safe and worth defaulting to `(int) ini_get(
 'mysqli.default_port' )` and using that instead of `null`?

 Following the code when there's a contradiction between the code and docs
 always makes me nervous. It could later be decided to be a bug and fixed
 with minimal warning.
