If your wireless doesn't work, it might be because it is soft-blocked
(that happened to lots of people with 2.6.31). Having it in core will be
helpful in such cases. However, I think this has been solved and
everything is unblocked these days.

rfkill will soon be an optdepend of netcfg, but it can still be in
extra. I have no arguments for any side.
