You may have done so, but from what you told the list, you don't
actually run that kernel you compiled. Your dmesg says that you run
GENERIC, compiled by Theo on Wednesday Sept. 17th. That is what's on the
CDs and on the FTP servers in the 3.4/ directory.

As long as you got yourself the correct sources, things should be in
order if you follow the instructions.

If I understand correctly, you fear that you run -current userland ...
on a -release kernel? That's not possible... i.e. nothing would work
correctly at best.
How about you install OpenBSD 3.4 on another (preferrably fast) box,
update your sources on it to -stable and make a release? You can then do
a binary upgrade of your important box to 3.4-stable...
In any case ... proper backups will make you feel better, less
adrenaline for less hasty decisions. :)
