iconv_std: complete the //IGNORE support

Authored by kevans on Feb 22 2022, 5:26 PM.



Previously, it would only ignore failures due to csmapper conversion
failure. It may be the case that the input string contains invalid
sequences that also need to be ignored.

A good example of //IGNORE application is sanitizing user- or remotely-
specified strings that are expected to be UTF-8; perhaps as part of a
pipeline that will feed the result into a system less tested against or
tolerant of illegal UTF-8 sequences.
