Re: [MiNT] /kern/welcome is latin1

When starting FreeMiNT, the (C) characters are displayed as expected on the BIOS console.

When doing later "cat /kern/welcome" (either in TosWin2 terminal or BIOS console), the same text is displayed, but the (C) characters are wrong.

By looking at sys/kernget.c, we can see that kern_get_welcome() translates the original text to latin1. This is done only for the /kern/welcome virtual file.

Any good reason for that nonsense?
I would prefer to remove that charset translation, so the message would display fine in any case.

Go ahead and post a fix. I don't see any good reason for it.
