[Dev-luatex] Problem with CFF fonts having em-size other than 1000

OpenType Postscript fonts having em-size other than 1000 don't show
correctly with adobe reader (I tested version 8), see the attached test
suit. Other viewers as Xpdf and libpoppler or muPDF based one show them
correctly, but ghostscript don't show any text at all.

This also happens with XeTeX (xdvipdfmx) and is suggested to be related
to the way CFF fonts are embeded[1][2].

I'm not sure if this is really a bug, such fonts seem to be problematic
and only adobe products seem to generate correct PDFs of them.

Regards,
 Khaled
