Why do we even waste 128mb on an ext3 journal for /boot? It changes
rarely and such a small filesystem with only a handful of files takes 0
time to fsck. On all my machines /boot is a 256mb (plenty of room for
the upcoming rescue image in /boot...) ext2 partition set to fsck on
every boot. Every time I upgrade, anaconda nags me to "upgrade" /boot to
ext3...
