The DecodeFSDefault return converter is used only in one function, os.ttyname(). It could be used also in os.ctermid(), but in any case there are too small use cases for it, because it is very uncommon to return a bare pointer to static C string. Since it is such uncommon and using this return converter does not add much to readability, I think that it is better to remove it.
