Bug#235699: xlibs: upstream default is no more pc104, but pc105

Package: xlibs
Version: 4.3.0-2
Severity: minor

In /etc/X11/xkb/keymap/xfree86:
  default xkb_keymap "us" {
      xkb_keycodes        { include "xfree86"             };
      xkb_types           { include "default"             };
      xkb_compatibility   { include "default"             };
      xkb_symbols         { include "us(pc105)"           };
      xkb_geometry        { include "pc"

The relevant changelog entry is:

 931. Change the default base symbols map from pc104 to pc105, which
      should fix most cases where the <LSGT> key isn't defined.  Also
      change the default XkbModel from pc101 to pc105 (Ivan Pascal). 

This tends to demonstrate that upstream was aware of the misconfiguration
problems that Debian users are currently experiencing, and their answer
was to set pc105 the default.  A similar change should certainly be
performed in xserver-xfree86.config.
It won't of course help when upgrading from previous releases, but at
least new users will have safer default values.
