Description

Now that we include nextboot, we can use it to control the properties of the next firewall boot sequence.

Two ideas come to mind:

1. An option to boot into single user mode (nextboot -o "-s" -k kernel)
2. An option to force a filesystem check using a kernel environment variable rather than a flag file (e.g. nextboot -e "pfsense.fsck.force=5", then check kenv pfsense.fsck.force)

Patch attached for testing which adds menu options to the console reboot choice. Should be easy to test once we get 2.4 snapshots going.
