hedmo,

ext2 is no longer set to on in the kernel by default, so you have made and installed a kernel that can no longer mount your /boot.
In your currently running kernel ...

Go into
Code:
make menuconfig

Select Second Extended Filesystem as <M>
Save the changes
Run
Code:
make modules && make modules_install

This will give you ext2 support as a module - no reboot required
Code:
modprobe ext2
mount /boot


Will now work.

When you upgrade your kernel, you can set Second Extended Filesystem as <*>, since you will be using the old kernel to install the new one.
