Background fsck does not work well with big filesystems, it can literaly
make server useless for long period of time, sometimes I just boot
server in single user mode and do "fsck -y" because while it means
downtime, but after this downtime server will work ... while background
fsck eats all server memory and most of CPU.

I'm very happy, that I dont need do this often :-)
