What I need is the specific error messages that e2fsck printed before
it said, "errors have been found that cannot be fixed".  E2fsck is
normally very, very verbose when it finds errors.  That detail is
critical for us to figure out what it was unhappy about.

(Unless Linux From Scratch is redirecting the output of e2fsck to
/dev/null, or some such, which I highly doubt, because it would be a
Really Stupid Thing To Do....)
