Re: port-shark/37670: a lot of characters missing from igsfb wscons

 So I can't figure out where the heck the font characters are really

AHA!  Now I know what is happening.

The default font used by wsfont if none are explicitly specified in the
kernel config file is bold8x16. That font has an encoding of WSDISPLAY_FONTENC_IBM, which causes wsfont.c to remap the displayed characters, and that mapping has an entry for the 0xdc character, but none for 0xdd - 0xdf, which matches what I actually see displayed.
