I don't particularly like silent adjustments of user-specified values.
And anyway, as you found out, this fix is not sufficient.
I'd suggest the following:
1. Create a sysvar for log-tc-size
2. invoke my_getpagesize() not from log.cc, but from mysqld.cc, and set
min and default values for log-tc-size appropriately, don't forget to
3. change the code not to depend on the TC_LOG_PAGE_SIZE constant.
- it's basically used in only two places now: to set a default for
TC_LOG_MIN_SIZE (but you'll fix it step 2) and in kristian's code for
group commit, cookies array.
- don't mind TC_LOG_PAGE_SIZE being used in TC_LOG_BINLOG, it means
nothing there, any reasonable number will do, I suppose.
- so basically you only need to remove TC_LOG_PAGE_SIZE from cookies
array. That is, you can define it as 'ulong cookies' and take
care to fix all sizeof() in the code to add the real size there.
4. Then you can remove that assert. The tc log page will be of
my_getpagesize() size and log-tc-size will be N*my_getpagesize()
