Why don't you just do what it says - use setkeycodes?  I get an error like
that when I press the Fn-F2 button on my laptop to turn off the wireless
transmitter.  Since it does what I want, anyway, I don't bother to do
anything about it, but if you've got a situation where this is annoying
you, just run setkeycodes to make it recognizable to your system and it'll
stop bothering you.
