Comment (by ken@…):

 For the first point, my trivial fix is:

 --- checkfs.orig        2017-03-16 20:37:09.765920497 +0000
 +++ checkfs     2017-03-16 23:40:11.087998544 +0000
 @@ -69,8 +69,8 @@

        if [ -f /forcefsck ]; then
 -         msg="\n/forcefsck found, forcing file"
 -         msg="${msg} system checks as requested."
 +         msg="${msg}/forcefsck found, forcing file"
 +         msg="${msg}system checks as requested."
           log_success_msg "$msg"

 I'll look at the second part later, for the moment all I can say is that I
 do have VERBOSE_FSCK=yes in rc.site on all my machines (waiting for a
 small fs to fsck without any message is annoying, waiting for a 3TB fs to
 fsck with no indication of progress is horrible). Thanks for taking the
 time to look at this.
