3) I expected to have cyrillic font for consoles (/dev/tty[1-6]) after
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
and reboot

4) I have cyrrilic font until I reboot. After reboot I have black boxes instead cyrillic chars.
If I do:
setfont /etc/console-setup/Uni2-TerminusBold16.psf.gz
then I have cyrrilic font in current console

I found that these scripts
/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-top/console_setup
/lib/udev/console-setup-tty
cannot properly set console fonts.
They don't recognize option CODESET="guess" and FONTSIZE="*x*" and check if exist only *.psf file, but we have *.psf.gz

I get part of code from /bin/setupcon and paste it in
/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-top/console_setup
/lib/udev/console-setup-tty
and add extra test for psf.gz and acm.gz files

The attachment contain original scripts, fixed scripts and patches.
