e2fsprogs: turn off enforced fsck intervals by default
The forced fsck often comes at unexpected and inopportune moments, and even enterprise customers are often caught by surprise when this happens. Because a filesystem with an error condition will be marked as requiring fsck anyway, I submit that the time-based and mount-based checks are not particularly useful, and that administrators can schedule fscks on their own time, or tune2fs the enforced intervals if they so choose. This patch disables the intervals by default, and I've added a new mkfs.conf option to turn on the old behavior of random, unexpected, time-consuming fscks at boot time. ;) Signed-off-by: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu>
