[PATCH] fbcon: Add rl (Roman Large) font

I converted the "rl" console font from the kbd utility to be a built-in font
for the framebuffer console, and I was wondering if you would be OK with
including it.  I've generated a font_rl.c file and related minor
modifications.  I find it's the most visually appealing of the kbd fonts which
is why I use it and selected it for conversion.  I believe the font is GPL'd.
