Well, I booted into Rescue mode from the installation media and ran e2fsck.
When I did, I got the following message --

Superblock last write time is in the future Fix(y)?

I said fix and it came back saying the volume was clean. I then rebooted
normally and it still ran an fsck. So, I went back and booted from the
rescue disk again, ran another e2fsck, and got that same message about the
superblock last write time being in the future. I again fixed it, rebooted,
and it still runs an fsck. Really strange.
