The setup code uses octal values with printf to generate a BOM for
UTF-16/32 BE/LE. It specifically uses '\777' to emit a 0xff byte. This
relies on the fact that most shells truncate the value above 0o377.

Ash however interprets '\777' as '\77' + a literal '7', resulting in an
invalid BOM.

Fix this by using the proper value of 0xff: '\377'.

I do wonder why this code is using octal values in the first place,
rather than using hex values.
