Bug Description

Touch is missing when we are not using BUSYBOX which means we fails to mark the filesystems as checked and end up double checking them.

Seems there is a simple fix in the Debian bug which we can simply apply. Switching from touch "$file" to :>"$file".

This bug was fixed in the package initramfs-tools - 0.120ubuntu2

initramfs-tools (0.120ubuntu2) wily; urgency=medium

    * update-initramfs: switch dpkg --compare-versions from > to >=
      to avoid warnings from dpkg. (LP: #1480340)
    * debian/control: update Vcs-* links for Ubuntu.
    * scripts/functions: use :> rather than touch to create fsck
      stamp. (LP: #1481789)
    * hooks/busybox: revert local changes, these now need to occur
      in the new late zz-busybox-initramfs hook. (LP: #1481733)
