Reading the dosfstools source, I found that there is already a fallback
if the codepage conversion does not work, so I don't think we have to
change anything there (see dosfstools-4.1/src/file.c in function

But according to Bryan, even mounting *without* checking the UEFI partition
doesn't work.

There's something else up (I very much doubt that mounting requires iconv--
since the mounting happens in the Linux kernel and not in the GNU userland
at runtime).
