Understood.

For those of us who don't want to omit the code, because we like
compatibility and we're not in affected countries, or for research, it
would be useful to have it as a mount option.

So there should be these compile-time options:

1. CONFIG_VFAT_FS_DUALNAMES disabled: Don't create shortnames.

2. CONFIG_VFAT_FS_DUALNAMES enabled: Create shortnames, unless
mount option "dualnames=no" is given, in which case that mount
behaves as if CONFIG_VFAT_FS_DUALNAMES is disabled.
