I haven't followed this thread, so I may be way off here, but...
In the above, /compat is a link to usr/compat. (note the -> symbol)
I suspect that you cannot mount on a link, and that mount
doesn't follow links.
You probably would have to mount on /usr/compat directly
or make /compat a real directory and not a link or something.
