[TiDB Usage Environment] Test
[TiDB Version] source: v3.0.6 target: v5.4.3
[Reproduction Path] I want to upgrade TiDB from 3.0.6 to 5.4.3. After setting up full backup recovery and incremental backup recovery, I used the sync_diff_inspector tool to verify data consistency.


[Encountered Problem: Problem Phenomenon and Impact]
sync_diff_inspector reported an error due to an invalid field default value, which prevented the diff program from initializing. Changing the default value from ‘1970-01-01 08:00:01’ to ‘1971-01-01 00:00:00’ allows normal verification. However, there are many fields to modify, and the table data volume is quite large. I would like to ask if there is a way to avoid modifying the field default values.
