finally this patch seems to have made it into recent Fedora Rawhide
kernel. Thanks for your work.

I have some trouble with it. Actually, the mapping of function keys F1
to F10 seems to be inverse. I have to press fn + function key to get a
plain function key event. Pressing a function key only gives me those
fancy new keycodes for brightness, mute, and so on. Page up, Page down,
Home, and End are working like expected.

My system: PowerBook5,6 (vendor id 0x020F)
Kernel: 2.6.15-1.1858_FC5, as per Changelog 2.6.15-git12
