well the intel box i have running xfs has a fsck pass of 1 xfsprogs
includes /sbin/fsck.xfs so the bootscripts are happy with that
(fsck.xfs does nothing successfully, xfs_repair is the real fsck)
i have no problems with keeping the ro argument in grub, its remounted
read-write by the checkroot.sh script.

by my reading of that script it should remount root read-write based
on /etc/fstab fs options, not by whether its fscked.  perhaps you
disabled /etc/init.d/checkroot.sh ?

i asked walters about this before i setup that intel box, he has left
read-only in his yaboot.conf and has not had any problems either.
