I do have on suggestion - if filesystem corruption has occurred (and
checkfs didn't catch it) wiping a bunch of stuff in /usr - you probably
don't want to boot to runlevel 3.

That would mount filesystem rw and if you have a filesystem problem, you
don't want to do that. You want to mount ro (if you mount at all).
