What I do is change the /etc/init.d/quota script to create a flag file in
/etc when it shuts down cleanly. Then on restart if the flag exists it will
skip the quota check. This way if there has been a crash then it will
re-check but otherwise it won't.
The plans for ReiserFS include making quotas a base part of the file system
with journal support to avoid having to ever do a quota check. I expect that
the Ext3 developers have the same plans.
