Sounds like a good idea to me, which will help some people who are faced
with confusing errors otherwise. I would say we want to both allow the
check to be cancelled while it's in progress (e.g. by pressing Escape),
and provide a menu option to boot without checking. For info, Fedora
does both of those things.
