Your patch still does not work for me.

$ kbd_mode -a
$ export LANG=ru_RU.koi8r
$ setfont data/consolefonts/koi8r-8x16
# loadkeys data/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ruwin_cplk-KOI8-R.map

When typing characters are visible correctly.

But with your patch:

# src/loadkeys data/keymaps/i386/qwerty/ruwin_cplk-KOI8-R.map

When I typing the characters displayed incorrectly.

How do you test this patch?

Can you show how loadkeys with this patch to be used in the examples?

I'm not sure that understand this. Do you want to load 8-bit keymaps
for UTF locales and unicode keymaps for non-UTF locales ? Am i right ?
