But it is clear from the error message that it IS a kernel problem.  It
would seem that you only _think_ that you are mounting the root
filesystem as ext3, because of output from "mount".  Check what is in
/proc/mounts to be sure.  If you have ext3 as a module, then there is
no problem in journaling other filesystems.
