    tune2fs -i0 -c0 device for each file system

    Yes that should be default, unfortunately it is not. It's one
    of the first things I do on new machines.

    fsck is actually seek bound, most likely it won't make much difference
    for fsck. Seeky disk IO is always slow on a spinning disk.

    There's actually been a patchkit recently to make fsck much faster
    by clustering metadata better so it can be reached with less seeks,
    but that hasn't reached mainline yet and and will unfortunately
    require freshly created file systems.
