Bug description:

  The menu is garbled in recovery mode when using Chinese characters.

  [Test Case]

  1. Install Ubuntu with selected Simplified Chinese language.
  2. Boot to recovery mode.
  3. Most character won't be readable and will appear as black square.
  (See "Bug attachment" for a screenshot)

  [Regression Potential]

  Regression risk is low.

  The fix simply, in Recovery mode only, default the system variables to
  something the console can output when detecting a blacklisted LANG in

  It doesn't affect/modify/change/... the system variables when booting
  in "normal" mode.
