I applied this patch to master (0b6f4f2c60) and it fixes the bug and
doesn't crash Emacs immediately.  The code also looks right, but I am
not familiar with Emacs's C code.  A few questions.

Why do we have to handle multibyte strings in this function
decode_coding?  (I found the answer in the docs)

Can you briefly explain how Emacs internally stores unibyte and
multibyte strings?  (I found the answer in character.h)

After doing the above research, I can more confidently say this is
right, but having an expert opinion would be nice.
