Can we please get rid of the memory allocation (in load_charset_map)
during a call to maybe_unify_char, which already caused trouble during
release of 24.2?  I had a couple of crashes in Emacs 24.2 lately, all
of them inside ralloc.c.  I'm currently trying a change that could
avoid the crashes, but I think the ultimate fix would be not to
disable relocation at all, as ralloc.c was probably not really
designed for that.

Perhaps Handa-san could describe what would it take to get rid of
maybe_unify_char, or at least the large memory allocation inside it?
Then we could decide whether I or someone else could do that in time,
if Handa-san cannot.
