Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| wmiconfig --wlan also sets a more global state, so most operations
| (ioctls, mainly) are refused (EIO) while WLAN is disabled.
| If rfkill is to act just like a switch that cuts power to the RF
| amp, then we'd actually a combination of the two.
Okie, but the overall semantic would be "put WLAN in lowest power state"
rather than just cut power to RF side. So the combination with logical
EIO and low power action sounds great.
