I've heard opinion that current API for loading tables into kernel is
hack. Don't remember exactly, who said this. Afaik it can be found in
some other PR.
Now in FreeBSD we have a special API to load some data blob into kernel -
firmwire(9). Is it possible to rewrite charset translation tables
loading code to use this API? Is it a good idea?
Totus tuus, Glebius.
