While I was hacking up an updated kernel-wedge/linux-kernel-di-i386-2.6
to use 2.6.39 to test this I noticed that nls_base is now built in
instead of modular, despite CONFIG_NLS=m under debian/config. This is
because various =y options (e.g. CONFIG_PCI_LABEL, CONFIG_JOLIET) now
appear to select NLS...
Probably not a big deal, nls_base.o is ~5k, but thought I'd mention it.
It just means that the nls-core-modules udeb goes away.
