[Server-devel] anaconda deletes /fsckoptions on F9 based XS

The xs-config package creates a file called /fsckoptions (yes, in /),
to stop headless servers from stalling on fsck questions.

This file is deleted by anaconda, some time after the end of ks.cfg's
%post section.  To be sure, I used:

if [ -e /fsckoptions ]; then
    touch /root/fsckoptions-there-at-end-of-post

and that flag is set.  Does anyone know how to stop anaconda doing
this?  Or is it necessary to use a first-boot rc script?
