i tried to mount vfat filesystem as utf-8

dd if=/dev/zero of=vfat bs=1M count=24
mkfs.vfat vfat
mount -t vfat -o umask=002,uid=0,gid=28,iocharset=utf-8,codepage=850,exec,showexec,loop vfat /mnt/

and i get:
Unable to load NLS charset utf-8
FAT: IO charset utf-8 not found

why is the nls_utf-8 compiled statically?
afaik no native fs (from what you intend to boot) needs nls_* modules,
therefore i think it should be as modules as other nls_* modules


other question is why vfat failed to initialize from static nls_utf-8
