bug#8172: 23.2.90; ansi-term mode does not properly handle keystrokes wi

From: Nelson Elhage
Subject: bug#8172: 23.2.90; ansi-term mode does not properly handle keystrokes with M- and other modifiers
Date: Fri, 04 Mar 2011 14:36:17 -0500

* Run M-x ansi-term
* Type a key combination including Meta and either Ctrl or Shift.
* The shell inside ansi-term will receive it with the control or shift

  You can verify this by e.g. trying C-v C-M-a into bash; The expected
  behavior is that bash prints ^[ and then moves to the beginning of the
  line; Inside ansi-term, it prints ^[a, since the C- gets dropped.

  This even happens with "shift", so M-D gets sent as "ESC d".

The bug is caused by `term-send-raw-meta`, which sends an ESC followed
by (essentially) (event-basic-type last-input-event), which also strips
all the other modifiers, not just M-./

The following patch fixes the issue for me, but I am not sure it is
correct in general.
