This manual page, http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/innodb-tablespace.html, lists the following item among others:

... Moving the Undo Log out of the System Tablespace

That link leads to http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/tablespace-splitting-undo.html (note 5.5 in the URL still) that is the same as http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/tablespace-splitting-undo.html (but without a number generated for a subsection that, surely, just does not exist in the manual for 5.5)

Last time I checked this was a new feature of MySQL 5.6...

How to repeat:
Try to move undo log(s) out of the system tablespace on MySQL 5.5, as manual suggests...

Suggested fix:
Remove link to 5.6 feature from http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/innodb-tablespace.html and remove useless page http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/tablespace-splitting-undo.html
