So I modified it a little bit to call `weston_seat_update_keymap` internally. My test indicates it seemed to work well so I hope it's a valid change to be merged. Or if there is any problems I hope to have some feedbacks.

I did see the MR you posted on Monday, but have not had the time to
comment on it until today. Usually if a couple of days passes it does
not mean that no-one cares or is interested, just that our review time
is limited. (Especially since you did actually get some review on the
MR ...)
