WL#3015: Logging Improvements – No Restarts(ver N3)
Added slow_query_log & general_log global upadatable variables.
Added slow-query-log & general-log startup options.
Added log_output, log_path, log_slow_queries_path global updatable variables.

Now we can do things like “SET GLOBAL general_log = ON;” and “SET GLOBAL log_path=’/log/tmp.log’;”.

This has been something long requested so it’s great to see this slip in to the tree in time for 5.1!
