Dear all,

I have a git-project which source code use gbk encoding. When use
gitweb blame view, it will report an error then stop parse:
>    Malformed UTF-8 character (fatal) at /usr/share/gitweb/gitweb.cgi line 
> 1595, <$fd> line 45.

After apply this patch, blame view of gbk source file will back to normally.
diff --git a/gitweb/gitweb.perl b/gitweb/gitweb.perl

When I search the git.git log, this commit add the "binmode ..." line,
maybe should recheck this commit? Thanks.
