comment Is Firmware OS Independent?
In what way on earth is this question off topic? While the answer is likely obvious to those who voted to close it, the question might be of some value to those of us who, while google'ing for an answer to said question, were not able to find any definitive answer as to the dependency relationship between OS and installed firmware.

+1, fair enough, nothing critical listed, but sounds like there may be some benefit. It's now or never as Fedora is going on to-be-formatted drive shortly.

comment MySQL: Increased buffer pool, ibdata1 corrupt?
Going to wait until this evening before I attempt a restart as the service is up & running reads/writes "seem" fine. When I made the my.cnf change I did notice several mysql processes running, at least 1 of which was a separate mysql> terminal session. The culprit may have been mysqltuner.pl which I had run a few times today; it requires one to login for the script to run, so there may have been a couple of extra mysql process running as a result
