Bug Description

The RN at http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/2012/10/11/announcing-percona-server-5-5-27-29-0/ are misleading.

have_flashcashe variable is YES when the flashcache code is compiled in (which it is).

Starting without flashcache you see:

mysql> show status like '%flashcache%';
+--------------------+-------+
| Variable_name | Value |
+--------------------+-------+
| Flashcache_enabled | OFF |
+--------------------+-------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> show variables like '%flashcache%';
+-----------------+-------+
| Variable_name | Value |
+-----------------+-------+
| have_flashcache | YES |
+-----------------+-------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

The documentation needs updating
