Follow-up: the problem was that there was no nls language module available
to load the vfat filesystem. Compiling and loading the nls_iso8859_1
and nls_cp437 modules solved the problem.

This seems like a bug to me: if vfat requires these modules, make-kpkg
ought to keep one from compiling a kernel that includes vfat but not the
required modules, or at least ought to warn about it.
