InnoDB index used by a foreign
key constraint, while
set to 0, could cause the server to crash with an assertion.
This operation now does not cause a crash. The foreign key
constraint can no longer be enforced once the associated index
is removed, so do not rely on it for referential integrity in

If the MySQL Server crashed immediately after creating an
