I've added /etc/e2fsck.conf to the e2fsprogs package, but to make the change effective for the root fs at boot time, /etc/e2fsck.conf will need to be present in the initramfs.
This was bandied about a as a blocker for F17, so I guess it's high-ish priority?
Since /etc/e2fsck.conf didn't exist before, you might need to make it non-fatal if it's not there, if possible.
already in dracut-018-1.fc17.noarch
dracut-018-23.git20120419.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Thanks Harald !
So with this update and e2fsprogs-1.42-4.fc17 in place, re-running dracut (or installing a new kernel) will create a new initramfs with an e2fsck which should not stop on the clock problem.
dracut-018-23.git20120419.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
