Revised Lohit Malayalam for bugs #799565 and #798870

There are some corrections. Please find attached a revised font. 

The correction is that the dot reph should have a positive LSB. Otherwise it
will become positioned on the previous letter rather than on the following
letter. Please see original proposal. PA DOT_REPH VA പൎവ should place dot reph
on VA, and not PA. So I have now moved the dot reph to the right. 

However, while it seems to be working correctly (at least in LibreOffice) with
medium-size consonants like ഗ വ etc, it still does not look good with wide
consonants like ണ. It should ideally be centered on top of the consonant as you
can see in the proposal samples. Can you please implement proper glyph
positioning? I don't know how to do that.

I will attach ODT and PDF samples of font as currently modified by me for
