Dear Maintainer,

I've had a couple of issues with a couple of Kannada fonts.

The first is Noto Sans Kannada (from fonts-noto-hinted). When I have the font 
installed, it is the default for rendering Kannada characters. However, certain 
characters (such as ಚು and ಕು) rendered in the font cause Emacs to completely 
crash with a segfault (I will add the exact output of the crash in a follow-up 

The second is Gubbi (from fonts-gubbi). This problem is hard to explain to 
someone who doesn't know Kannada, so I will attach pictures in to demonstrate.

At least one font which works perfectly well (as far as I'm aware) is Lohit 
Kannada (from fonts-lohit-knda).
