I can't find your modifier.el but maybe it's been renamed/integrated and
has turned into the C-x @ thingy: C-x @ c is a prefix which adds a control
modifier to the next key.

So you can do C-x @ c M-\ in order to get to the C-M-\ binding.
Of course C-x @ c is not very convenient, so if you need to use it often,
you probably want to bind it to a shorter key sequence such as C-f12:

    (define-key function-key-map [C-f12] 'event-apply-control-modifier)
