I promise it's the last topic on console
charsets from me for the time being. :o)

I'm using the distribution kernels in their default
'quiet' mode. Still, upon boot I see the following:

assuming iso-8859-2 eogonek
assuming iso-8859-2 Eogonek
assuming iso-8859-2 aogonek
assuming iso-8859-2 Aogonek

After googling a bit, I've found[1] RedHat's bug #125130, but I'm not
sure I follow what's that bug is about (except it's about keymaps).

In that bug's discussion, the above lines appear as an effect of the
`loadkeys pl` command in an UTF-8 console; nevertheless booting into
Hoary lefts the user without any keymaps loaded. Does the kernel try
to load the proper keymap and fails?

This seems to be related to my last comment on the "Polish UTF-8 keymap"
