PDF can use OpenType font with ordinary CFF data as a CIDFont. Such a font is
referenced by /CIDFontType2 and may have /CIDToGIDMap table. The following
changes have been done to support this usage.

- A flag that forces CIDFont generation was added to CFF font loader.
- When the flag is on, CFF font is converted to a Type 9 CIDFont.
- The FontSet resource is returned by the value from the font loader
  because it can be of either Font or CIDFont type,
- Since CIDMap has no effect on CIDFont Type 9, CIDToGIDMap is interpreted
  by PDF reader to modify GlyphDirectory to the same effect.
- Unused CIDMap is no longer generated for CIDFontType2 objects that are nor
  TrueType CIDFont resources.

Regression testing shows no differences.
