Here are some patches required for the upcoming graphical installer.  As I
patched the glibc they require to rebuild the world, thus I would like to push
them on a wip-newt-installer branch.

By the way, is this approach (sending series to review and push them on a wip
branch) ok, or should I proceed differently ?

Another precision, I'd like the installer to support internationalization.
So working with raw linux terminal is excluded. After some resarchs, I see
only two options:

* Using bterm[1] like D-I (Debian Installer) and Anaconda. It is a framebuffer
  terminal supporting multibyte locales.
* Use kmscon[2], a terminal emulator based on linux KMS.

Even if both of them are unmaintained, I prefer kmscon which seems stable
enough and has nice features, such as font rendering with pango,
internationalized keyboard handling with libxkbcommon, hardware accelerated
rendering and is already packaged as a service for GuixSD.

What do you think of this choice?

Thank you,

So Mathieu, I’m closing this issue.
