Initially I did not think too much about xorg.conf since your problem
was caused by an upgrade without configuration change (if I understood
you correctly). I guess the new version of Xorg is somehow less tolerant
towards ill-defined configuration settings.

I meanwhile looked up the allowed XkbVariants for the "us" XkbLayout:

$ awk '/xkb_symbols/{print $2}' /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us

Leaving it empty should be equivalent to choosing the "basic" variant.
