Bug Description

Binary package hint: upstart

As always with karmic as of today and this time also
with current ubuntu-boot PPA.

If any filesystem except "/" has an fstab(5) fs_passno value other than "0"
booting stops because fsck complains about not wanting to check
a mounted file system.
This bug was triggered by setting fs_passno of /boot to "2".
