For keyboard layout switching keys, new key names "GroupNext", "GroupPrevious", "GroupFirst" and "GroupLast" are defined.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
These key are defined for GTK's ISO keys.

According to the definition of ISO,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_9995#Groups

this works as switch of keyboard layouts. Therefore, I believe that AKEYCODE_LANGUAGE_SWITCH of Android should be "GroupNext".

http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/KeyEvent.html#KEYCODE_LANGUAGE_SWITCH
>  public static final int KEYCODE_LANGUAGE_SWITCH
> Added in API level 14
> 
> Key code constant: Language Switch key. Toggles the current input language
> such as switching between English and Japanese on a QWERTY keyboard. On some
> devices, the same function may be performed by pressing Shift+Spacebar.

Support "GroupFirst", "GroupLast", "GroupNext" and "GroupPrevious" key values on GTK, Android and Gonk

The _Group_Lock variants are not used in any xkeyboard-config layouts, even on layouts where the _Group keys lock the group.

So if _Lock aren't actually used, perhaps no need to add them here.
