    NLS: improve UTF8 -> UTF16 string conversion routine · 0720a06a
    Alan Stern authored
    The utf8s_to_utf16s conversion routine needs to be improved.  Unlike
    its utf16s_to_utf8s sibling, it doesn't accept arguments specifying
    the maximum length of the output buffer or the endianness of its
    16-bit output.
    This patch (as1501) adds the two missing arguments, and adjusts the
    only two places in the kernel where the function is called.  A
    follow-on patch will add a third caller that does utilize the new
    The two conversion routines are still annoyingly inconsistent in the
    way they handle invalid byte combinations.  But that's a subject for a
    different patch.
