In 8-stable and 9-current, we have made several patches in the USB keyboard 
area for Apple Keyboards, like supporting the eject key, swapping keys, etc.

Regaring the boot issue with Mac, I think it can be solved by adding a quirk 
in the kernel:

amd64/machdep.c:                if (strncmp(sysenv, "MacBook1,1", 10) == 0 ||
amd64/machdep.c:                    strncmp(sysenv, "MacBook3,1", 10) == 0 ||
amd64/machdep.c:                    strncmp(sysenv, "MacBookPro1,1", 13) == 0 
amd64/machdep.c:                    strncmp(sysenv, "MacBookPro1,2", 13) == 0 
amd64/machdep.c:                    strncmp(sysenv, "MacBookPro3,1", 13) == 0 
amd64/pmap.c:                   if (strncmp(sysenv, "MacBook5,1", 10) == 0 ||
amd64/pmap.c:                       strncmp(sysenv, "MacBookPro5,5", 13) == 0 

Similar for i386.

Could you print out your sysenv during boot and try adding your MacBook to the 
quirk list?
