So assuming /var/lib/mysql/data/ is your mysql data directory, you could
create a new directory called /var/lib/mysql/data/data1, then move all the
directories from /var/lib/mysql/data/* into data1.  Then you could create a
symlink in /var/lib/mysql/data/ pointing to /var/lib/mysql/data/data1/<dir
name>.  When mysql tries to load the data directory, it follows the symlink
to the underlying directory (in /var/lib/mysql/data/data1).
