this is a "known issue" but due to multiple bugs, #1061045 and #981116; 
I think the workaround in the etherpad(1) was missing at least the 
selinux step, needed if you have selinux in enforcing mode

the full sequence for me sums up to:

# yum install -y mariadb-server
# chown mysql:mysql /var/log/mariadb/mariadb.log

# touch /var/log/mysqld.log
# chcon -u system_u -r object_r -t mysqld_log_t /var/log/mysqld.log
# chown mysql:mysql /var/log/mysqld.log

# rm /usr/lib/systemd/system/mysqld.service
# cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/mariadb.service
