Bug Description

All XB tests in the 'innodb51' configuration fail on centos5-32 Jenkins slaves due to SELinux when trying to start the server from a non-standard location. innodb51 is the only configuration where the server needs to load a plugin. That fails as follows:

130310 22:37:45 [ERROR] Can't open shared library '/home/user/src/2.0/test/server/lib/plugin/' (errno: 22 cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied)
130310 22:37:45 [ERROR] Couldn't load plugin named 'innodb' with soname ''.

Corresponding messages from /var/log/audit/audit.log:

"setenforce=0" on those slaves would fix the issue, but that appears to be too difficult. This report is to implement a workaround in the XB test suite.

If this bug can reappear in non-testing environment due to other
reasons, I can add this as an exception to selinux rule.

However, according to
 Basically a DSO is loaded, at some point the application determines the code needs text relocation and uses the mprotect call to set the memory region read/write. After the text relocation, the code is marked back to read/exec which triggers the access check. Usually the DSO does not need to be text relocatable, but a programming mistake has happened.

So, bug fix helps here, also, I checked for others on CentOS64-6
with readelf -d PROGRAMS | fgrep TEXTREL -- couldn't find any.

Percona now uses JIRA for bug reports so this bug report is migrated to:
