`checkroot' and `checkfs' are executed before `mountall', so the only
file system mounted at that point is /, which is read-only. I can't
create /var/log/fsck at this point.

What is possible is to mkdir /var/log/fsck after `mountall', so
`logsave' can write to /var/log/fsck/checkfs. Is it what you want?
Note, that I send and fetch email in batch, once in a few days.
Please, mention in body of your reply when you add or remove recepients.
