Yes, normally it will say "use e2fsck-f", but after use e2fsck-f, then
resize2fs still fails, it'll say "use e2fsck-fy".

"-p" : correct the errors which is not dangerous, but say "n" to some "may be dangerous"
	ones.
"-y" : always say "y" to try to fix the errors whether it is safe or not.
	so, when using "-y", you should know what are you doing now.
