Workaround f You are using remi repository and have conflicts when trying to install php-mysql:

yum remove mysql-server mysql-libs mysql-devel mysql*

and after You uninstalled EVERY mysql related package You need to install compat-mysql55 from remi-test repository but You should not install MySQL-libs package so You disable remi repository to install compat-mysql55 only:

yum --enablerepo=remi-test --disablerepo=remi install compat-mysql55

After that You can install MariaDB and php-mysql extension with:

yum install MariaDB* php-mysql

and it should be installed without conflicts.
