I propose a complex patch, which significantly speeds up UTF-8 decoding. Now decoder faster even decoder in 3.2 (except in a few unreal patological cases).

Also the decoder code reduced and simplified (formerly decoding code was repeated in at least three places).

As a side effect ASCII decoding now faster on some platforms (issue14419).

Here are the results of benchmarking (numbers is speed in MB/s).
