      • Monitoring-only sockets must not send SCRAM mechanism negotiation in isMaster and must not authenticate at all.
      • Non-monitoring sockets (e.g. connection pool or single-threaded client) do a "normal" handshake and authenticate if there are credentials.
      • An authentication error on a socket must close all (and only) non-monitoring sockets to the same server.

      Possible backward breaking change:

      • Some drivers were resetting a server's topology description to Unknown on an authentication error and should stop doing so. This means the topology will always be "correct" even when authentication fails.
      • It will no longer be possible for authentication errors to be masked as server selection errors.

      Detailed changes:
