This seems to be a problem with the mount command.  Why do you feel the kernel 
may be at fault?  If the kernel can get to mount, then it has obviously already 
mounted / (though possibly in read-only mode, which is something you should let 
us know...)
There is also not necessarily a corrolation between a man page and the actual 
binary.  Check the binary's modification time and such for better detail here.  
Beyond that, try running the mount command manually from the command line after 
booting from a CD or in single-user mode, if single-user mode works.
