With a single, large filesystem on /, you cannot take advantage of
things like background fsck, cuz / always needs to be checked fully
before the system goes multiuser.

A small / partition is quick to fsck, and can be kept mounted sync to
ensure consistency without harming system throughput. All the others
(/var, /usr, /foo) can be checked after the machine is live, greatly
speeding up post-crash recovery.
