Comment (by bdubbs@…):

 The output for the checkfs script is:
 {{{
   log_success_msg "\n/forcefsck found, forcing file system checks as
 requested."
 }}}
 That \n by itself is causing the problem.  It probably should be
 {{{
   log_success_msg "\n     /forcefsck found, forcing file system checks as
 requested."
 }}}
 adding 5 spaces for the SUCCESS_PREFIX at the start of the line.  See if
 that works for you.
 ----

 For the second issue, the bootscripts do not control the output of fsck.

 If the environment variable VERBOSE_FSCK is set, then the command 'fsck -f
 -a -A -C -T' is run.  We don't set VERBOSE_FSCK anywhere in our scripts so
 it must be set manually by the user.  If VERBOSE_FSCK is not set than
 outout is directed to /dev/null. (stderr still goes to the screen).

 The -C option displays completion/progress bars.  Other options are:
 {{{
 fsck
 -a     Automatically repair the filesystem without any  questions
 -A     Walk through the /etc/fstab file and try to check all filesystems
 in
        one run.
 -T     Don't show the title on startup.

 fsck.ext2
 -f     Force checking even if the file system seems clean.
 }}}

 I don't know what you want to do about this, if anything.
