Our rfkill code is using deprecated functionality. The 'new' ABI is
documented at
I am not too familiar with rfkill, so if someone could rewrite the
rfkill code, that would be much appreciated.
Instead of using the new sysfs structure, we could also use the rfkill
userspace program, although I don't know whether that would have any
practical advantages.
