Dear co-maintainers and maintainers of flash-kernel, what is current
state of issue?

 * Does FSCKFIX=yes still wanted by `flash-kernel' package?
 * What will break if FSCKFIX=yes will be set on by default?

One part of code, affected by value of FSCKFIX is checkroot.sh:213:

	if [ "$FSCKFIX" = yes ]

This `fix' variable is used as argument at checkroot.sh:234:

	logsave -s $FSCK_LOGFILE fsck $spinner $force $fix -t $roottype $rootdev

By the way neither -a nor -y mentioned in fsck(8) (but mentioned
in fsck.ext4(8)). Is it okay?
