Well, the journal doesn't always avoids the fsck, it depends on the king
of the crash (if it's a panic in filesystem code I know I want to run
fsck anyway :)

Also, the fsck time depends a lot of the filesystems parameters.
A 9Tb filesystem formatted -O2 -b 32k -f4k -i1000000 can be checked
in less than one hour.
