Seems a simple enough change.

There's a comment in the keysymdef.h file:

  * When adding new keysyms to this file, do not forget to also update the
  * following:
  *   - the mappings in src/KeyBind.c in the repo
  *     git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/lib/libX11
  *   - the protocol specification in specs/XProtocol/X11.keysyms
  *     in the repo git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/doc/xorg-docs

As it's just additional mnemonics and not a new keyboard it should not 
affect KeyBind.c

I think the X11.keysyms needs to be updated though to match.*  Can you 
include that change too?

*The protocol spec has moved from
x11proto/specs/XProtocol/X11.keysyms  to  x11proto/specs/keysyms.xml
