Proposed patch updates locale alias table to most recent locale.alias file (from X.org 7.7 distribution).

Looks good.

BTW, regarding the devanagari cases:

There is some recent activity in glibc related to these. Here's a
patch that adds the  sd_IN@devanagari locale to glibc:
http://sourceware.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/libc/localedata/locales/sd_IN@devanagari.diff?cvsroot=glibc&r1=NONE&r2=1.1

So they will start working once platforms adopt the new
glibc versions.

The @-modifier is applied to the locale, not the encoding, because
the locale uses a different script, as opposed to limiting itself
to part of an encoding. This looks reasonable, even though I'm
not sure it conforms to standards.

Should these patch be applied only to 3.4 or to all maintained 
releases? I suppose the later, because alias table which is not 
conform recent systems configuration is a bug.

This patch only updates the devanagari cases in conform to 
locale.alias file. *Issue20027 should fix support of these cases.*

Agreed.
