The right way to remove the journal-capability from a ext2/3 fs is to
fsck the (unmounted) fs and then do a "tune2fs -O ^has_journal" on it.

Beware that the journal may not be the only reason that you cant mount the
fs, ext2/3 has flags in the superblock that mark backward-compatible and
incomaptible extensions, some of these might be unknown to openbsd (and to
older linux versions), read tune2fs (8).
