The file `/usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base` has for the specification of `! $inetmediakbds =` in lines 104-117 the wrong character to denote that the next line should be a continuation of the previous line:

* It has: ` /`
* It should have: ` \`
* The current situation is a syntax error, making e.g. `ckbcomp` fail:
WARNING: Syntax error in the following line in "rules/base":
WARNING: armada asus_laptop benqx btc5090 btc6301urf btc9019u /
Died at /usr/bin/ckbcomp line 3228, <RULES> line 105.

Patch attached.
