It's not referring to disk space. Linux will generally force an fsck
under the following conditions:
* A partition wasn't unmounted cleanly
* It's been a long time since this partition was checked
* A partition has been mounted, cleanly, many times since the last fsck
("maximal mount count")
You should only get this message on occasional boots; if you get it
every time, something's wrong.
