Moving MySQL Binary Logs to a New LVM Logical Volume

I had a RHEL6 machine with lots of large MySQL binary log files in /var/log/mysql and was in need of more space on that volume. I am running MySQL 5.5 from IUS.

The system had an unused LVM logical volume. So I proceeded to mount the LVM logical volume at /var/log/mysql so that binary logs would get written to the logical volume.

Step one: unmount the logical volume

Not strictly necessary for a rename but a nice precaution.
