No; autocommit is more of a logical SQL operation, where
innobase_flush_log_at_trx_commit causes a physical action. With
autocommit unset, you can send multiple UPDATE commands and roll them
back. innobase_flush_log_at_trx_commit simply determines what happens
when someone does a COMMIT (or if autocommit=on, when any change is
made). If it is unset, the logfile is only flushed when an internal
buffer fills up (not sure how large that buffer is).
