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.
