Superblock in future is still a problem

Hello All,

I just installed F17 on my clock-free embedded system board. However it still has that problem where the bootup fails because the superblock has a future time in it. The specific message is something like:



UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY: RUN fsck MANUALLY

...

Superblock last mount time ...etc... is in the future



If you search for "superblock future" on google, there are ways of fixing it on a non-embedded system. You can alter /etc/e2fsck.conf to ignore the problem by adding "broken_system_clock=true" to the file. However when installing F17 directly into an embedded system, it seems to ignore that /etc/e2fsck.conf file, probably because the bootup phase loads a ramdisk initially.



Anyways, it would be nice if F17 could be installed in clockless embedded systems. That is all!
