    locales: Enforce US-ASCII encoding (limited to 7-bit)
    The US-ASCII format was getting treated identically to POSIX.  It is
    supposed to throw an ILSEQ errno if a value of 0x80 or greater is
    encountered, so let's bring back the "ASCII" handling.
    While here, change nl_codeset to return US-ASCII only when the encoding
    really is "US-ASCII".  Before "C" and "POSIX" encoding returned this
    string, so now they return "POSIX".
