    Subjectcommit a29ccf6f823a84d89e1c7aaaf221cf7282022024 break console on slackware 12.1
    Hi Folks,

    reverting commit a29ccf6f823a84d89e1c7aaaf221cf7282022024
    fix a problem with the text console on slackware 12.1

    With 2.6.27-rc1/slackware 12.1, applications like
    mc or 'make menuconfig' are broken on text console
    (they are fine running inside an xterm).

    Just for record: 2.6.26 is fine

    a29ccf6f823a84d89e1c7aaaf221cf7282022024 is first bad commit

    Make console charset translation optional

    By turning off the new CONSOLE_TRANSLATIONS option and dropping the
    associated code and tables from the kernel, we can save about 7KiB.
