How can that happen when every once in a while upgrades require a full
clean shutdown with innodb_fast_shutdown=0 so that the ib_logfile*
have to be rebuild due to an on-disk format change?
More to the point, if that is a concern, why can you not shut down
cleanly with innodb_fast_shutdown=0, rm the files, and let MariaDB
re-create them completely clean and empty?
