MySQL should startup cleanly.
If I Yum downgrade mysql-server, mysql, and mysql-libs I'm able to successfully startup MySQL:
yum downgrade mysql-server mysql mysql-libs
[root@login mysql]# rpm -qa | grep mysql
service mysqld start (service now starts and works correctly)

I'm running this version of MySQL on a Rackspace Cloud Server instance.
Looks like this may be somewhat of a duplicate of 782513.
If you 'yum update systemd' the latest version (5.5.22) of MySQL seems to work fine.

This is a system where there was no update since it was installed, the problem
occurred when I installed mysql. I only selectively updated systemd to see if
it would fix the problem I was having. Keeping my system up to date also have
avoided the problem but I would have thought installing mysql would update
systemd if required.

Yes, this is most probably the same issue. Closing this for now, but feel free
to reopen it if the problem persists even with the current systemd.
