On second thought, perhaps I will just drop this option all together.
It is really not needed as booting with base norestore provides a fully booted base system no drives mounted. You can then pick and choose whatever and which ever and run as many times e2fsck as desired. This option is a carry over from compressed knoppix image booting days and is really not required when the base system loads entirely into ram.

Now that you can load the *core* extensions and wm and "startx" with microcore after booting with "base norestore", it's as easy to run e2fsck as use the "checkfs" boot code.

Is there a way to invoke the boot routine to load all extensions in /tce after "base norestore" rather than "tce-load -i" one-by-one?

not at present. I usually type loop command at prompt to batch load.

On second thought, time to implement it.
