Actually, they should mostly use `input-decode-map` instead nowadays (the
difference is that `input-decode-map`'s remapping is applied
unconditionally, where `(local-)function-key-map`'s remapping is only
applied when there's no normal keybinding).

This remapping should probably be applied to any terminal that has
a kp-enter key, so I think the change is for the worse.

This one should also refer to `input-decode-map`.

As above, I think these changes are for the worse.
