Some update. I've learned that in case of "StandardOutput=journal+console"
everything is still piped to journald rightaway, so systemd does not 
mirror to console by itself. From looking into the code, journald simply 
mirrors messages to console if instructed to do so, by either "+console" 
per service, or ForwardToConsole=yes globally.
So I've also added (to my /etc/systemd/journald.conf):


Still no effect... Well, I do see some more messages, but still nothing 
from systemd-fsck! I'm really puzzled...
(And yes, I do remember to re-run mkinitrd every time I change 
journald.conf and friends)

Thank you,
