    I would think far mnore than marginally useful... this would provide
    an improved possibility of avoiding fsck, something many people would find
    desirable. And along that line I'll offer one more idea, not to increment
    the mount count if a f/s is mounted and no writes are done to the f/s,
    such as ro mount, noatime mount and no writes, etc. The check for fsck
    after N mounts was designed to assist with reliability, not be a penalty
    in boot time.
