Description of problem:
The default kernel does not include support for read-only ntfs.
I know it's a small thing. Not everyone has ntfs partitions. And
someone who wants the module can go to the source code and compile the
module. Except it's quite a hassle to get the distribution kernel
source to compile a kernel module that will work, basically requires
junking the default kernel and going with a new one just because the
distributed kernel didn't have that option set to include ntfs support
as a module. Just set the option, don't even have to include the
module, just make it possible to compile the module as-is with the
source code provided.
Note: Yes of course I'm talking about read-only access.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check /lib/modules/*/kernel/fs/ntfs*
2. Try to mount an ntfs partition
Actual Results: System doesn't have ntfs support
Expected Results: System should find ntfs module

the other modules, and save thousands of people the hassle of getting
