Subject[PATCH]console:UTF-8 mode compatibility fixes

This patch applies to 2.6.15.3 kernel sources to drivers/char/vt.c file.
It should work with other versions too.

Changed console behaviour so in UTF-8 mode vt100 alternate character
sequences work as described in terminfo/termcap linux terminal definition.
Programs can use vt100 control seqences - smacs, rmacs and acsc characters
in UTF-8 mode in the same way as in normal mode so one definition is always
valid - current behaviour make these seqences not working in UTF-8 mode.

Added reporting malformed UTF-8 seqences as replacement glyphs.
I think that terminal should always display something rather then ignoring
these kind of data as it does now. Also it sticks to Unicode standards
saying that every wrong byte should be reported. It is more human readable
too in case of Latin subsets including ASCII chars.

It's the second version with original codes used in case when there is no replacement
glyph defined. So all scanned bytes are remembered. Anyway it could be used
in the future if we implement screen buffer as UCS-2 plus attributes
so copying from it in UTF-8 mode will always work properly.
