[REGRESSION] Broken keycodes of special keys

Description of problem:
The F10 X11 server seems to return keycodes breaking ~/.Xmodmap files which exist for decades. E.g. left Meta key is now 133, but was 115 formerly, similar changes exist for the other (right) Alt/Meta + arrow keys.
~/.Xmodmap can be probably adjusted to the new situation but this makes it impossible to use an NFS /home shared between several machines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. press left Meta key
reported as 'keycode 133' in F10
reported as 'keycode 115' in every previous release
Could we get /var/log/Xorg.0.log from the X session when no /etc/X11/xorg.conf is present, please?

/etc/X11/xorg.conf was attached in the first comment already
Keycodes vary. They're already not portable between, say, x86 and sparc machines. Don't map by keycode. Map by keysym.
