drdos8x16 console font has incomplete Unicode mapping

I like drdos8x16.psfu.gz - it looks right and has all the symbols I want. My PS1 contains a club (♣) which turns into a heart (♥) when I'm root. This became a problem - these symbols don't display correctly, despite being in the font (showconsolefont shows them at 0x005 and 0x003 respectively).

I managed to find out that I can examine the internal mapping from symbol index to Unicode codepoint with psfgettable, and discovered that 0x001 through 0x013 and 0x016 through 0x01F aren't mapped to any Unicode codepoint other than the unprintables at the beginning of the Basic ASCII block, even though they all have Unicode codepoints.

I'm not sure how to go about fixing this - can I set FONT_MAP to something in vconsole.conf, or do I need to edit the font itself? How do I report this bug upstream?
