ESP and character sets
Hello list,

A word to the wise:

I was caught out today when compiling a new kernel. I used to have a few code
pages compiled as modules, as well as UTF-8 built in, but today I couldn't
mount /boot for the new kernel because it needed ISO 8859-1 built in - the
mount command didn't cause the module to be loaded.

Now, of course, I have any likely code pages built in.

Is this a bug or a feature of the 6-series gentoo-sources, or possibly just
6.2.x? Anyway, I was going from 6.2.0 to 6.2.1 when I was tripped up.

Hope that helps someone.
