A count of how many times a filesystem has been mounted. Used to determine whether a Forced Fsck should be executed.

After a successful fsck (filesystem check), the mount count is reset to zero. When the mount count reaches (or exceeds) the Maximum Mount Count, a Forced Fsck is executed during boot.
