http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_lower_case_file... does not denote the fact that file system is either case sensitive or not and changing some MySQL variable has no effect on that fact.

How to repeat:
See manual page.

Suggested fix:
Note that lower_case_file_system is not settable but rather reflecting the attribute of the file system.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant products.

Added to description:

This variable is read only because it reflects a file system attribute and
setting it would have no effect on the file system.
