For the option, the fsck manpage says -y is auto-yes for some filesystem
types, and refers you to the appropriate filesystem specific manpage. I
use reiserfs here, which takes it for some cases but not when used with
Gentoo's baselayout, at least the 1.12 series now both stable and ~arch
are running, doesn't appear to use the normal /etc/conf.d/<service> config
files for checkroot and checkfs that it uses for other services. I've
maintained local modifications for some time, however, that use a conf.d
file with my own switches in it, and don't use those in the default
service files at all.
So... to add the -y or any other switches you wish, modify the checkroot
and checkfs scripts directly, either adding your switches directly as
appropriate, or to use a conf.d file with your switches in it, as I did.
You will of course need to understand a bit of bash scripting to be able
to correctly parse and update the scripts, and will need to ensure that
your make.conf CONFIG_PROTECT and CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK settings are set to
protect your changes so an update doesn't just blindly overwrite them.
