[PATCH] [SRU] [CONFIG] [oneiric/master] Compile-in fvat support in armel

SRU Justification:

Impact: Removing the running kernel (perhaps because we want to rollback to a
previous one due to a regression) result in a system with no support for fat
filesystem, and thus with the inability to flash/install the alternative kernel
in the boot partition

How to reproduce: boot the beagle board, remove the running kernel and then
run flash-kernel (see below)

Fix: Compile in support for v/fat and necessary nls modules (codepage 437
and iso8859-1) (see the attached patch)

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/853783

BTW the same options are already =y in oneiric/omap4.
