A lot of the tests pass console=... and thus in fact have a real console.

It might be that our new automatic console getty interferes.
I doubt it - I checked agetty sources and it doesn't touch iutf8.
Might still be worth a try to remove agetty from %base-services.

check-system TESTS=basic works fine in master indeed ...

That's a good question.

Anyway, I think these codes are emitted by unicode_start - so
as a first step, sabotage the kbd package so that it can't
use unicode_start.  Does it work then?
