Do not waste your time please, we will replace the entire kernel
font/keymap logic with a userspace font renderer and xkeymaps and real
hotplug, .... There is no point really in add a library now, when we
will get rid of it anyway later.

The kernel's VT will only be a debug console if all went south, and
systemd will not set that up wit localization. The kernel's VT
subsystem is just too broken to be used as a console for daily use
