In api_data.py, we define the configuration prefix_search to enable early exit on a prefix search in search_near. However, we have been using prefix_key to enable that option, see cur_std.c and one of our search_near test.
We need to change the name in api_data.py as we may have users who already use the configuration name prefix_key.
It would be worth investigating how we ended up with this discrepancy.
Definition of done:
The discrepancy is removed and one consistent terminology is used.
Make sure it does not impact MongoDB tests by checking the source code and triggering a patch build.
