  [nouveau] Console font corruption

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  With a non-default console font size set by dpkg-reconfigure console-
  setup, nouveau displays corrupted glyphs rendering the VT useless.

  This looks to have been fixed upstream in commit 8af16649 - Fix fbcon
  corruption with font width not divisible by 8.

  I'll verify & post a patch.
