In my case the journal replay failed, with an error to that effect. All
partitions other than / failed to mount and after hitting enter at the
.../bin/sh prompt performed manual fsck on all of them, which found and
fixed some stuff. Then shutdown -r and everything came up fine (clean)
afterwards. Net result was no data loss for me.
