devtool: check locale and refuse to start if it isn't UTF-8paule/devtool-utf8
We need to ensure the locale is UTF-8 or otherwise strange errors will occur later on during execution - the same reason we check this in BitBake itself. Unfortunately this check has to be before command line parsing and therefore showing the help text in response to --help, since that relies upon parsing bitbake's configuration (as we need to load plugins in other layers). Fixes [YOCTO #10908]. Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <paul.eggleton@linux.intel.com>
