    Subject[PATCH 0/2] Enlarge the storage of chars in virtual terminal
    Greetings

    The motivation is display much more characters on the
    framebuffer console than 512. If this is done, foreign
    languages can be easily rendered with currently supported
    utf-8 encoding.

    In order to display fonts with more than 512 chars,
    the storage of one char in virtual terminal must be
    enlarged. Currently vt holds one u16 for every character,
    7 bits for attributes. The patches extend it into u32.

    Virtual terminal is referenced by many other drivers.
    If it has been changed, others must be changed as well.
    Change all of them may spend 1 or more weeks, and the
    patches include the change of fbcon. So I just put the
    done part here and wish to have your advices.

    Any reply is appreciated, thank you.
