OK. I'll implement it, then.

Please check the syslog message, and imporove it if it should include

I would prefer to use cron.hourly or cron.daily, and not having to use
cron.d. The check is not very expencive. A simple 'df' with sime
text parsing, and it completes quickly when no resize is needed.

I prefer /usr/ on a separate partition, to be able to boot and try to
repair the file system if it go corrupt. The chances of a corrupt
root is smaller because it is normally much smaller in size, while
/usr/ have a higher chance of touching a bad block due to its size.

Not by default. :)
