Should fs_passno in /etc/fstab be always set to 0



That seems to be the indication given by this webpage
http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/ext3/ext3-usage.html

However, default install of Redhat 7.2 setsup fs_passno(6th field of
/etc/fstab) as 2 which asks you if you want to run fsck after an unclean
shutdown

The question is, is fsck required after an unclean shutdown or should
one just rely on journal replay. What does fsck do when it sees an
unclean ext3 filesystem
