Even on smaller 200GB-systems this takes annoyingly long time, but I see the
need why one would occasionally want to run this anyway. 
	Last time I rebooted one of our servers to get a new kernel loaded, I
was told at boot that it'd been some 400days or so since the last fsck. After
such a long time you might want to do the forced check anyway, just in case.
It's for your own good. 8-)
