This series implements support for displaying UTF-8 sources in TUI
windows.  This implementation properly handles horizontal scrolling,
which was an issue in earlier attempts.

No new test case -- I tried to write one, but I could not get it to
work.  It's unclear if this is due to a bug in my test, a bug in
tuiterm.exp, or a bug in curses; and I got irritated trying to find
out.

Just FYI, I'm planning to hold this series until after the release
branch is made.  This introduces the first use of curses pads into gdb,
which makes me a bit nervous.
