That must make it really slow to boot, even if it can fsck the drives
in parallel.  I could not do that, as the full fsck time for my worst
partition (a JFS one) is over 10 minutes.  I think it is a lot more
actually, but I have never waited around for it to finish to find out.
I just go away and do something else and come back much later.
