I have a different suggestion.  If you do not want to fsck the
remaining 1 TB file system, modify /etc/fstab and set 0 in the sixth
field (fs_passno) to disable automatic fsck for that file system.
There is as far as I can see, no need to extend checkfs.sh and
checkroot.sh to avoid having to fsck file systems at boot time.

Any reason why this would not work for you?

Happy hacking,
