Not during the first few boots, because I haven't installed xfsprogs
yet, so there is no fsck.xfs (not even the dummy one that just exits
with success). That's one downside of using a root filesystem that is
not "by the book".

Actually, the only fsck.xfs that exists is a dummy program that just
returns success so fsck itself can continue on. XFS' filesystem
check/repair tool is called xfs_repair and is not frequently used.
