Subject: CONFIG_KMOD breakage in next kernel

Hi,

I found that CONFIG_KMOD was already removed in linux-next tree.
This seems to result in many breakages.  For example, I cannot mount a
FAT device automatically because of failure of automatic loading of
nls modules.

My particular problem would be fixed by the patch below, but I found
CONFIG_KMOD is still referred in many places.

% find * -name '*.[ch]' | xargs grep -l CONFIG_KMOD

Anyone working on this?  It must be trivial.

Or, revert the following for the time being until all these are fixed:
commit ba90ad7a589abdf59553a622c35cc149a348034f
Author: Johannes Berg <johannes@...solutions.net>

    remove CONFIG_KMOD
    
    Now that nothing depends on it any more, remove CONFIG_KMOD.
