How to set systemd for automatically force fsck disks after crash (hard poweroff)?

When I used sysvinit (in Arch Linux) as /sbin/init I used the hack: in the rc.local I create /forcefsck file; in the rc.local.shutdown I remove it. At boot-up rc.sysinit enable force fsck if /forcefsck exists.

How to do same in systemd? Maybe it has built-in facilities for automatic fsck after crush?

You can force fsck at boot time by passing fsck.mode=force as a kernel command line parameter (as of systemd v. 213, there's also a second parameter: fsck.repair - to control how fsck shall deal with unclean file systems at boot).
