 The reasoning outlined at
 kernel/2009-March/009733.html is correct but the implementation is not. In
 my testing reverting this patch solves the reported problems (at the
 expense of exposing rfkill races of course). I propose to revert
 9c4451ff31b937a478f3d3eabef30b71cbe12b12 (patch attached) and to declare
 we don't care about rfkill races unless somebody dedicated brings driver
 in a sane state first.
