[PATCH] Remove ext4 support from the packaging defconfig

The attached patch removes ext4 support from the packaging defconfig for
the gta02.  Ext4 is already not present in the gta02 micro defconfig,
and is also not present in the gta01 defconfig; this change will leave
it present in the gta02 moredrivers defconfig.

In addition to keeping the kernel somewhat smaller, this change
sidesteps a bug[1] in the early 2.6.29-rc<n> kernels where an ext2
rootfs partition is erroneously mounted as ext4 by the kernel, causing
boot failures on the gta02.

(Signed-off-by and description are in the attachment - my mailer ruins
whitespace, so I can't really send it inline - sorry!)
