On the same note, /fastboot makes sure no fsck is done. The conditional
statement skips everything if that is there.
This is useful if you need the box up as much as possible, and reboots
only slow things down as little as possible because even if the box did
not reboot gracefully (power outage or something) there will be no
fsck (of course, this also means there could be filesystem corruption,
you can't have it both ways).
well, with xfs, I believe you can. It seems that you dont have to worry
*too* much about non-gracefull (graceless?) reboots. The journaling
filesystems are quite nice in that regard.
