[PATCH] sensors: print the degree sign in the terminal's current locale

Hi all,

To print the degree sign, sensors lookups the current locale, outputs it
in UTF-8 if the locale is in UTF-8, and in latin-1 otherwise. However
some people are using other locales. Moreover, it is rather irritating
for people using a Japanese locale, as the character code 176 is a start
of sequence of characters for EUC terminals.

The attached patch uses iconv to convert the degree sign in an UTF-8
format to the current locale.

Aurelien
