This series of patches provides the following:
- A fix for bug 25744 [1].
- Implementations of the mbrtoc8 and c8rtomb functions adopted for
   C++20 via WG21 P0482R6 [2] and proposed for C2X in WG14 N2653 [3].
- A char8_t typedef as proposed for C2X in WG14 N2653 [3].
- A _CHAR8_T_SOURCE feature test macro to be used to opt-in to support
   for the char8_t typedef and mbrtoc8/c8rtomb functions in pre-C++20
   or C source code.

Patch 1: A fix and test for bug 25744 [1].
Patch 2: Definitions of the mbrtoc8 and c8rtomb functions, the char8_t
          typedef, and the _CHAR8_T_SOURCE feature test macro.
Patch 3: Tests for the mbrtoc8 and c8rtomb functions and the char8_t
          typedef.

The fix for bug 25744 [1] is included in this patch series because the 
tests for mbrtoc8 and c8rtomb depend on it for exercising the special 
case where a pair of Unicode code points is converted to/from a single 
double byte sequence.  Such conversion cases exist for Big5-HKSCS.

Tom.

      second byte of certain double byte characters"
