It was recently clarified on kernel ml that the power_on wlan node
actually applies reset to the chip. Therefore nobody should really use
it. Either the magic ioctl or binding/unbinding the driver works.

echo s3c2440-sdi > /sys/bus/platform/devices/s3c2440-sdi/driver/unbind


echo s3c2440-sdi > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/s3c2440-sdi/bind

can be used for the time being.
