    The character set used by the kernel is UTF-8. So we should check for
    people trying to add invalid stuff in other character sets. There's no
    way for them to _label_ legacy character sets as such; it's not like
    MIME email where we can use a different charset for every mail and
    expect people to cope. We need to be consistent.

    Oops. I prepended that to the output of 'git-diff' just to make
    checkpatch happy. And then forgot about it when I inserted the text file
    into my mailer.
