bug#25945: Emacs aborts while calling FT_Load_Glyph

For me, Emacs aborts at ftfont.c:1550 while `mew' tries to display an

  1549  if (FT_Load_Glyph (ft_face, g->g.code, FT_LOAD_DEFAULT) != 0)
  1550    emacs_abort ();

Examining `ft_face' and `g->g.code' I see that the font in question is
`Padauk Book Bold' (PadaukBook-Bold.ttf), glyph 376.  Examining this
font further with `ftview' I see that bytecode of this font is broken,
and that the font can only be displayed successfully without bytecode.
[This is version 3.002 of the font, taken from the current TeXLive

I think there is no reason that Emacs aborts for such broken fonts.
Instead I suggest that (a) Emacs tries to load the glyph again without
hinting, and (b) if that fails, it should display a missing glyph,
using the standard rectangle with hex digits in it.

New code for (a) is quite simple:

  if (FT_Load_Glyph (ft_face, g->g.code, FT_LOAD_DEFAULT) != 0)
    if (FT_Load_Glyph (ft_face, g->g.code, FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING) != 0)

[The code might be further improved by implementing a per-font glyph
 load mode, to be initialized with `FT_LOAD_DEFAULT'.  If, say, 100
 calls using `FT_LOAD_DEFAULT' for a given font fails, and
 `FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING' is successful, the default loading behaviour for
 this font could be switched to `FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING'.  Given that such
 broken fonts are rare my suggestion is probably overkill, however.]

My knowledge of Emacs internals is too small to provide an
implementation for (b).
