A test of upgrade from 6.0.9 to 6.0.10 fails with a server crash when it is attempting to create a Falcon table after the upgrade.

Upgrade is done by restarting the 6.0.9 server with a 6.0.10 version and the same database directory and then running the mysql_upgrade command.

Shortly after upgrade the test tries to create this table: 

CREATE TABLE falcon_table2 (
col1 CHAR(1) CHARACTER SET utf8,

This fails with: 

failed: 2013: Lost connection to MySQL server during query

and the server has crashed.

The master.err file shows:

090311 13:54:53 - mysqld got signal 6 ;
This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help diagnose
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely wrong
and this may fail.

It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_size + sort_buffer_size)*max_threads = 60622 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

The manual page at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/crashing.html contains
information that should help you find out what is causing the crash.
Writing a core file

I will upload a separate file with the backtrace from all threads taken from the corefile.

How to repeat:
What I have done:

1. Start 6.0.9 server
2. Create a schema
3. Stop server and start it again with version 6.0.10
4. Create a Falcon table: 

REATE TABLE falcon_table2 (
col1 CHAR(1) CHARACTER SET utf8,

The crash is 100% reproducible in my test environment. I do not get a crash if I create the same table with MyISAM instead of Falcon, or if I use mysqldump to upgrade the database (dump in 6.0.9 and load into 6.0.10).

much simpler test case:

1. start any 6.0.x server less than 6.0.10 with fresh db(I checked with 6.0.8 and 6.0.9):
2. mysql -uroot -s /tmp/mysql.sock -e'create table t1(a int) engine falcon'
3. mysqladmin shut -uroot -s /tmp/mysql.sock 
4. start 6.0.10 server with the same database 
5. mysql -uroot -s /tmp/mysql.sock -e'show create table t1' -> server crashes

Lars-Erik, Since issue has major exposure, Can you reproduce it right away and determine what code change is at fault.  I suspect it is one of Vlad's changes to the serial log or index.  But we need to find out and provide a fix before the next clone-off if we can.

      Bug#43562 Crash when creating a Falcon table after upgrade from 6.0.9 to 6.0.10
      The reason for the crash is that generation of multisegment key format was changed 
      slightly as side-effect of fix for 42136. The new format worked ok with new databases
      but not with the old ones. 
      In this particular case, the error comes from Falcon's internal security mechanism. 
      Due to changed index format, a query in Falcon's data dictionary unexpectedly returned 
      an empty result set. This was interpreted was missing privilege to create tables.
      Exception (security error) was thrown and not caught.
      - Define new minor ODS version 2.4 for databases with changed multisegment index.
      - During the start, perform a check for 2.4 format(MySQL 6.10 would correspond to 
      2.4 Falcon)
      When building multisegment indexes, regard the ODS version and create different 
      indexes in 2.3  and 2.4.
     @ storage/falcon/Database.cpp
        Special check for ODS version 2.3 (it  can be in fact 2.4)
     @ storage/falcon/Database.h
        Increase ODS_MINOR_VERSION
     @ storage/falcon/Dbb.cpp
        New function to upgrade minor ODS version the fly
     @ storage/falcon/Dbb.h
        New function to upgrade minor ODS version the fly
     @ storage/falcon/Index.cpp
        Depending on ODS version, build multisegment key in either 2.3 or 2.4 format.

Patch looks good.  We need our QA group to create backward compatibility tests from now on.

Upgrading MySQL to 6.0.10 from 6.0.9 when using Falcon tables and the mysql_upgrade tool would cause mysqld to crash during start up.
