:>     Hmm.  Does the machine crash if you manually mount an ext2fs partition
:>     after booting is complete, without ext2fs support compiled in or a
:>     module loaded?
:No, it does not.  It automatically loads the kernel in that situation.
:Just not, for some reason, during the bootup process.

    Loads the kernel?  Or loads the module?

    Is ext2fs your root partition?  It could be related to the system
    not being able to find root due to the filesystem type being 
    unknown.  I'm not sure it's critical enough to take action now, but
    if someone wants to track it down I'm sure it could be fixed
