Take it with a grain of salt, but after looking at the rc.d stuff,
every rc.d script that doesn't end in ".sh" is sourced in a subshell, 
but a script ending in ".sh" is sourced directly into the current shell.

So appending ".sh" to the rc.d/fsck script should achieve what you are
looking for, if I understand correctly (man 8 rc.d).
