Subject: [PATCH] nls: remove "support" for 5- and 6-byte UTF-8 sequences

5- and 6-byte UTF-8 sequences existed to accomodate code points starting
from U+200000.

Those code points couldn't fit into old 2-byte wchar_t type.

Commit 74675a58507e769beee7d949dbed788af3c4139d added 16+ bit Unicode support
but started (correctly) to check for maximum valid code point
which is U+10FFFF.

U+10FFFF decodes into just 4-byte sequence.

5- and 6- byte UTF-8 sequences were made illegal long ago in
Unicode standard and never had a chance to be used in Linux,
so put them out of misery.
