No, I didn't compile my own kernel. The USB stick in question was stuck into 
the back of a redhat linux box. Okay, I did actually try also mounting it 

mount -t ext2fs /dev/da2s1 /usb2

just to see what would happen. After trying it a couple more times I see 
that was what was adding the that warning to dmesg. So that's explained, but 
I still don't understand why I can't mount it with mount_msdosfs
