Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6-amd64-generic

fn key is required on apple keyboards to do common functions (delete,
pageup/down, home/end, volume, etc). The apple aluminum keyboard and new
macbook3,1 ("Santa Rosa") are both affected.

Attached is a patch from the mactel-linux-devel list by Martin Szulecki
<mactel at sukimashita.com> that adds the aluminum keyboard. I have
modified the patch to include the macbok3,1 keyboard as well as
additional keycodes that were present on "powerbook" keyboards (delete,
pgup/down, home/end).

This patch has been tested on a macbook 3,1 by myself on an amd64
