latest 2.6 kernel breaks vfat support?


here's my setup:
60 gb hard
with 40 gb in reiserfs partitions
20 gb in fat32 (i use it for music)

everything was fine with kernel 2.6.7, then i upgraded to 2.6.11.3. UH OH. i can't mount my vfat partition anymore . so, being that a conversion was overdue, i just converted it, no biggie.

Now, 3 weeks later, i have a digicam with a smart media card. i bought one of those 6-in-1 readers, and i'm having the same problem - i can't mount vfat partitions - the same error i was having earlier.

james@a4-1800:~$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/reader
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
or too many mounted file systems

Sooooo... my only clue would be the introduction of " Default codepage for FAT " ( FAT_DEFAULT_CODEPAGE ) and " Default iocharset for FAT " ( FAT_DEFAULT_IOCHARSET ).

they are currently compiled with codepage = 437 and iocharset = iso8859-1

what should the defaults be?

wow. i answered my own question a minute after posting this.

compile the default charset as a module, load it, and it will work.
