I submitted a number of patches which fixes currently broken 
Unicode-disabled build of Python 2.7 (built with --disable-unicode 
configure option). I suppose this was broken in 2.7 when C 
implementation of the io module was introduced.

http://bugs.python.org/issue21833 -- main patch which fixes the io 
module and adds helpers for testing.

http://bugs.python.org/issue21834 -- a lot of minor fixes for tests.

Following issues fix different modules and related tests:

http://bugs.python.org/issue21838 -- ctypes
http://bugs.python.org/issue21855 -- decimal

http://bugs.python.org/issue21841 -- xml.sax

Most fixes are trivial and are only several lines of a code.
