Fn+F2 should be bound to "Lock screen" on ThinkPads

Description of problem:
On ThinkPads "Fn+F2" key combination should be bound to "Lock screen" in gnome
It works as expected on Ubuntu 7.10

"Fn+F2" quirk has already been added to hal-info. Its code is 0x92.
Now it needs to be bound to "Lock screen" in gnome keyboard shortcuts.
One thing that's tricky here is that gnome-settings-daemon only lets you bind
one keypress to an action rather than multiple (as it'd be good to leave
ctrl+alt+l working for laptops which don't have a screenlock button)
I guess it could be sort of worked around by having multiple lock screen entries
although that's kind of a kludge.
gnome-settings-daemon isn't in gnome-session.
The easy fix is to add a bunch of static keys to gnome-settings-daemon, as
should be done for the "default" XF86 keys.
Gnome supports multiple keybindings for the same action.
