util: replace 'ellipsis' implementation by 'encoding.trim'

Before this patch, 'util.ellipsis' tries to avoid splitting at
intermediate multi-byte sequence, but its implementation is incorrect.

Internal function '_ellipsis' trims specified unicode sequence not at
most maxlength 'columns in display', but at most maxlength number of
'unicode characters'.

    def _ellipsis(text, maxlength):
        if len(text) <= maxlength:
            return text, False
            return "%s..." % (text[:maxlength - 3]), True

In many encodings, number of unicode characters can be different from
columns in display.

This patch replaces 'ellipsis' implementation by 'encoding.trim',
which can trim string at most maxlength columns in display correctly,
even though specified string contains multi-byte characters.
