Following the big xserver-org/mesa seg-fault/crash I was at grub

1.) I could reach the diversion to maintenance mode where it
recommended running e2fsck on mounted partitions, which I eventually
did, reluctantly.

I would usually either boot from a "rescue" CD (or an installer and
choose Rescue mode), or add the kernel boot option "forcefsck" along
with the "ro" option (on both Debian and Red Hat systems).

2.) On restart I got up and running with errors flying everywhere,
missing files and directories and frequent process failures.
