    I would prefer to:
    - make default_utf=1 in the source
    - add "default_utf8 ? VC_UNICODE : VC_XLATE" to the keyboard code
    as your patch does
    - and do away with the new CONFIG_ option, since, surprise, surprise,
    you can change it at runtime, so there is no need to do it
    at compile-time too.
