The vfat kernel code has two dependencies: the code page (437) and the iocharset
(iso8859-1), and while the former is built-in (like the vfat code itself), the
latter is built as an external module, making vfat unusable unless the
nsl_iso8859-1 ko is available at the moment a vfat filesystem is mounted.

What is just a discrepancy in the config that we never hit (since we are
shipping the nsl_iso8859-1 .ko in our initrd), became a problem in kernel
derivatives of our -generic kernel (e.g. snappy) where we don't have any control
on the modules people pack in their initrd, and in case the boot partition is a
vfat partition that is being mounted during the boot.

For this reason, i propose to fix the root problem and turn
CONFIG_NLS_ISO8859_1=y to make the vfat code completely independent on any
external factor.
