systemd-fsck@.service is a service responsible for file system
checks. It is instantiated for each device that requires a file
system check. systemd-fsck-root.service is responsible for file
system checks on the root file system. The root file system check is
performed before the other file systems. Either service is enabled at
boot if passno in /etc/fstab for the file system is set to a value
greater than zero.
systemd-fsck will forward file system checking progress to the
console. If a file system check fails, emergency mode is activated,
by isolating to emergency.target.
systemd-fsck understands one kernel command line parameter:
One of "auto", "force", "skip". Controls the mode of operation.
The default is "auto", and ensures that file system checks are
done when the file system checker deems them necessary. "force"
unconditionally results in full file system checks. "skip" skips
any file system checks.
