[PATCH] NLS: improve UTF8 -> UTF16 string conversion routine

CVE-2013-1773

BugLink: https://launchpad.net/bugs/1134523

The utf8s_to_utf16s conversion routine needs to be improved.  Unlike
its utf16s_to_utf8s sibling, it doesn't accept arguments specifying
the maximum length of the output buffer or the endianness of its
16-bit output.

This patch (as1501) adds the two missing arguments, and adjusts the
only two places in the kernel where the function is called.  A
follow-on patch will add a third caller that does utilize the new
capabilities.

The two conversion routines are still annoyingly inconsistent in the
way they handle invalid byte combinations.  But that's a subject for a
different patch.
