Looking through the code, I see that the variable `charset_unibyte' is
not initialized properly.  That's the only reason it's 0.  We have to
fix this for sure.

Can we use charset_iso_8859_1 instead of charset_unibyte, or add a line
that says

    = define_charset_internal (...);

in syms_of_charset?

Number 3 is not a trivial change.  IIUC, unibyte_char_to_multibyte is
very fast.  Changing it to use DECODE_CHAR may lead to a performance
