The top function is garbage_collect, but whatever leads it to close
the fonts isn't triggered by a manual call to garbage-collect in
emacs.

Also: if the garbage collector isn't wrong, the fact that font
entities are garbage means that it really is okay to close them: they
wouldn't be accessible to all the other code anyway. I don't quite
understand how font_open_entity decides to load a font against using a
cache, but making sure fonts remain accessible to the call path

face_for_char -> fontset_font -> fontset_find_font -> font_open_entity

is probably the thing to do. Setting compact_font_cache_entry to a
noop doesn't seem to do the trick, font_open_entity gets called too
many times anyway, if I'm not mistaken.
