Did you install new fsck? Maybe this topic is related. I
copied it from /usr/src/UPDATING.
The superblock layout for FFS was changed. If you have 1.6
fsck binaries, they will signal a fatal superblock mismatch
with the first alternate, because they compare too many
fields (even ones that aren't useful). If possible, upgrade
your fsck_ffs binary before using a new kernel.
None of this signals actual filesystem damage.
I think the easiest way is download snapshot from
http://releng.netbsd.org/ and update system by that.
However, I don't know how to "update". Last time, I tried
to update, it was similar to overwrite. I lost all local
configured files. Probablly I did something wrong, and
there is the proper "update" way.
