I'm running Ubuntu through crouton on a Chromebook 14 and since the system only has 18GB of space I want to put /home and /usr on a 32GB flash drive that I will have attached to the system. I have partitioned the flash drive so that it has a partition for each and have used this command to copy all the files to the proper partitions:

find . -depth -print0 | cpio --null --sparse -pvd /media/removable/PARTITION

I then edited /etc/fstab as follows:

UUID=9fee4259-6db6-43c6-b2e6-624b719eb56e /home          ext4    defaults        0

UUID=db1c7b5c-a41b-4196-8ce7-76b0b028bd44 /usr ext4 defaults 0

The UUIDs matche the values from here:

spyke01@localhost:~/Downloads/wakfu$ ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Apr 19 16:43 224669a3-b991-450d-9988-a3629b676f29 -> ../../sda8

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 10 Apr 19 16:43 db1c7b5c-a41b-4196-8ce7-76b0b028bd44 -> ../../sdb5

I've rebooted but it doesn't appear that the partitions have mounted to the /home and /usr locations. Here's the output showing this:

I don't know if the errors at the top give any info on the issue.

How do I fix this?
