MySQL Update fails — at Initial Version

Description

Given the models below:

class House(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=200)

class Room(models.Model):
    name = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    house = models.ForeignKey(House, on_delete=models.CASCADE)

The following query fails:

houses_with_suites = House.objects.filter(room__name__icontains='suite')
Room.objects.filter(house__in=houses_with_suites).update(name='suite')

With this error:

OperationalError: (1093, "You can't specify target table 'mysql_test_room' for update in FROM clause")

I think this has been around for a while (https://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/20300).
