Re: Fsck errors at boot, but boots anyway

I've been getting some strange fsck errors for over a year now on my
Debian 8 workstation. See photo: http://tinyurl.com/otzxebh Ignore the
softreset errors. I can't really remember when the issue started, but it
was sometime after I upgraded to using systemd. I kept thinking it was a
bug and would fix itself, but apparently not.
As the photo shows /dev/md_d1 (a partitionable raid5 array) is brought
online, hangs for about 10 seconds, displays fsck: error 2 while
executing fsck.ext3 for /dev/md_d1p1
followed by error code 8 (operational error)
Then the systemd-fsck runs next and completes fine and the system boots.
So is this some conflict between util-linux and systemd? All my
filesystems are ext4 by the way.
Another issue is when a fsck actually does run, systemd doesn't display
the output, the screen just hangs for 20 minutes or so which to the
unknown user, they may reboot the machine and screw stuff up. Is that
just the nature of systemd or is there a fix?
I tried googling all these issues but really couldn't get anywhere.
Ok, found my issue. I had rootfstype=ext4 as a kernel parameter, yet the
FS was not converted fully to ext4. Must have been like that for awhile,
because I converted all my FS's to ext4 back in 2009.
