What vintage is your fsk_ffs binary?
If it's 1.6 you should get the latest 1.6.2_RC3 one and replace it, see
the entry in src/UPDATING copied below.
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.
