Yeah, but for a corrupted partition, one should *not* continue the boot
process. So perhaps leave that one as fatal. It seems to me that since
e2fs likes to call everything an error, we either have to discriminate
between the exit codes, or force a reboot so the next time checkfs runs
it will pass.


Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best
state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one;
for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries *by a
government*, which we might expect in a country *without government*,
our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by
which we suffer."

- Thomas Paine
