SubjectRe: [PATCH] Fix console utf8 composing

What do you think we should do? I have not given this fix any thought,
because it applied fine for long time (+/- fuzz), so I cannot comment on
anything in your version being better or not.

I doubt that there is reason to support characters beyond 0xffff.
CJK is within 0xffff, besides that console fonts just do not have the
capacity to support CJK in a meaningful way.
