It works with numlock off and on. It doesn't clean keycode and matches
it exactly with mask. Instead it applies mask (with &) and checks if
all bits that are set in the mask are set in keycode. If your mask
doesn't include numlock, numlock state can't change anything.

What changed is that when you bind Ctrl+A, Ctrl+Shift+A is matched
too. That is why I added "break" in the loop. It means you should bind
Mod1+Shift+Return first and Mod1+Return later, but it is how it is done
in default config.h so there are no problems.

We still can't remove updatenumlockmask, because it is used in grabbuttons
and grabkeys. Maybe it can be removed later.

If my patch doesn't break anything, I think it makes code a little cleaner.
