      It's very confusing to have Percona Server error during startup - it is especially confusing if the server in fact fails to start, while the reason is not actually Flashcache. Here's the flashcache notices during the startup:

      Mar 31 17:50:19 localhost mysqld: 110331 17:50:19 [Note] Flashcache bypass: disabled
      Mar 31 17:50:19 localhost mysqld: 110331 17:50:19 [Note] Flashcache setup error is : ioctl failed

      I think it would be best to suppress these unless flashcache device actually exists. Another way to approach this could be a flag to explicitly enable flashcache in Percona Server though I'm guessing that may break existing flashcache installations after upgrade.
