This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed- xenial'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

What is just a discrepancy in the config that we never hit (since we are shipping the nsl_iso8859-1 .ko in our initrd), became a problem in kernel derivatives of our -generic kernel (e.g. snappy) where we don't have any control on the modules people pack in their initrd, and in case the boot partition is a vfat partition that is being mounted during the boot. For this reason, i propose to fix the root problem and turn CONFIG_NLS_ISO8859_1=y to make the vfat code completely independent on any external factor.
