[alpine-user] Multiple questions related to Alpine Linux

1) In the Alpine install environment, unicode characters display
correctly in the console, but after installing to disk and rebooting
they display as '?' on /dev/tty1. On all other ttys they display
correctly. What could be the cause of this?

2) If installing Alpine to disk, the script 'setup-disk' will not use
mkinitfs.conf from Alpine install environment when creating the
initramfs image, but instead "ata base ide scsi usb virtio" is hardcoded
in the script and will become the default in the installed system. To
install Alpine on eMMC on have to edit 'setup-disk' and add mmc to
inifs_features or else boot will fail. Is it intentional that
'setup-disk' will not use mkinitfs.conf?

3) While creating a custom Alpine ISO image with the 'alpine-iso'
script, I want to add some scripts to /sbin in initramfs. How can I do
