Make CONFIG_FHANDLE default y
Newer Fedora and OpenSUSE didn't boot with my standard configuration. It took me some time to figure out why, in fact I had to write a script to try different config options systematically. The problem is that something (systemd) in dracut depends on CONFIG_FHANDLE, which adds open by file handle syscalls. While it is set in defconfigs it is very easy to miss when updating older configs because it is not default y. Make it default y and also depend on EXPERT, as dracut use is likely widespread.

If you say Y here, a user level program will be able to map
file names to handle and then later use the handle for
