rfkill: rewrite
This patch completely rewrites the rfkill core to address the following deficiencies: * all rfkill drivers need to implement polling where necessary rather than having one central implementation * updating the rfkill state cannot be done from arbitrary contexts, forcing drivers to use schedule_work and requiring lots of code * rfkill drivers need to keep track of soft/hard blocked internally -- the core should do this * the rfkill API has many unexpected quirks, for example being asymmetric wrt. alloc/free and register/unregister * rfkill can call back into a driver from within a function the driver called -- this is prone to deadlocks and generally should be avoided * rfkill-input pointlessly is a separate module * drivers need to #ifdef rfkill functions (unless they want to depend on or select RFKILL) -- rfkill should provide inlines that do nothing if it isn't compiled in * the rfkill structure is not opaque -- drivers need to initialise it correctly (lots of sanity checking code required) -- instead force drivers to pass the right variables to rfkill_alloc() * the documentation is hard to read because it always assumes the reader is completely clueless and contains way TOO MANY CAPS * the rfkill code needlessly uses a lot of locks and atomic operations in locked sections * fix LED trigger to actually change the LED when the radio state changes -- this wasn't done before Tested-by: Alan Jenkins <alan-jenkins@tuffmail.co.uk> Signed-off-by: Henrique de Moraes Holschuh <hmh@hmh.eng.br> [thinkpad] Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net> Signed-off-by: John W.
