Here's a quick patch that remaps the "Fn" key of the Powerbook G3 Series
keyboard to an unused keycode (actually 0x7e). I'll post clean
vger-related patches later (when vger is back), this one is relative to
Paul's rsync tree. (Paul:You may want to include it now, I don't think it
breaks anything).
The original keycode of this key is 63, and conflicts with the buttons
emulation of Xpmac.
