Bug Description

When booting following a crash fsck is triggered for the root volume (LVM containing ext4 filesystem). This is correctly announced by systemd/plymouth and remains announced for the duration of the fsck, however the percentage complete is always 0.0% for the entire duration of the check. For those of us with no disk lights this is very off putting.

Adding a boot with fsck booted with debug on the kernel command line, attaching journalctl -b as requested on IRC.
