>Problem is it's failing a fsck on boot (on /var) and can't continue
until a manual fsck is performed on the drive, which requires the root
pass!! So, boot -s etc. won't work in this case, because it'll still
fail the fsck and still ask for the password.

BOFH excuse #82: Yeah, yo mama dresses you funny and you need a mouse to delete files.
