Default Bug#554149: initramfs-tools: please include e2fsck

Package: initramfs-tools
Version: 0.93.4
Severity: normal


Hi,

in this post by Ted Tso:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14354#c149

one can read the following sentence:

Distributions that want to be extra paranoid should store fsck
and all of its needed files in the initrd, and then check the root
filesystem before mounting it ro, but no distro does this as far
as I know.

During boot, it would allow to mount the ext4 root FS read-only without
replaying the journal. So could you please include e2fsck and
dependencies in the initramfs ?

people want to cram all kind of things that don't belong
into initramfs.

fsck is a clear example of a duty that has to be invoked after init
call.
