Sorry to only chime in about this at v4.

I think this patch & the documentation you added for
core.checksumindex in 1/4 would be much less confusing if you made
this a on-by-default command-line option like e.g. "full".

With this patch nothing amends the documentation to indicate that the
core.checksumindex is magically overridden when fsck runs, I think
something like this (needs amending to integrate) on top would make
this clearer:
