in-kernel UNICODE font support for fbcon

Posted on January 1, 2011

I first got this patch from 内核补丁:字符终端显示UTF-8字符串

but , there is some problems ….

1) why not extending kernel VGA font to support UNICODE?

2) why so many duplicated code ? too many copy&past, Linus won’t take this patch

3) Why all char > 127 should be double-weight ?

4) I need to use setfont to set UNICODE font, with this patch, I can’t. So , I made some changes … to eliminate all problems above.

so ,here is the git repo
