innodb_checksum_algorithm could use further clarification

    Details

      Description

      Documentation about innodb_checksum_algorithm is already quite detailed, but still confusing.

      It says:

      strict_: The strict_ options are the same as the regular options, but InnoDB will halt if it comes across a mix of checksum values.

      It doesn't specify what exactly counts as a "mix of checksum values".
      For example, currently

      • if server was bootstrapped with crc32 and then started with strict_innodb, it causes an error on startup (which is probably the above quote means)
      • if server was bootstrapped with full_crc32 and then started with strict_innodb, it starts fine.

      Possibly it can be explained by the previous description of full_xx specifics, but it does seem to contradict the part about strict_xx.
