Bug Description

[In:Percona XtraBackup Documentation]

Following statement requires more elaboration:

Although it can be done by copying back the prepared backup to a “clean” datadir (in that case, make sure of having included the mysql database)


How this is supposed to work is:

Suppose A is the directory after preparation, you copy A as
/var/lib/mysql (remove the older mysql directory), run a
sudo mysql_install_db --user=mysql and then you are good to go.

Well, this is technically not a partial restore but can help people sometimes when they want to take a dump or so.
