and rebooting should do the trick, but check "lsmod" output to be
sure), does that avoid rfkill trouble?
If so, please send a summary of symptoms to firstname.lastname@example.org,
cc-ing email@example.com, Anssi Hannula <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
and either me or this bug log so we can track it. Be sure to mention
- steps to reproduce the problem, expected result, actual result,
and how the difference indicates a bug (should be simple enough)
- which kernel versions you have tested and what happened with each
- full "dmesg" output from booting and reproducing the bug on an
affected kernel, as an attachment
- PCI registers for your wireless card (from running "lspci -vv -s06:05.0"
- any other weird symptoms or observations
- a link to http://bugs.debian.org/684352 for the backstory
Hopefully someone upstream can suggest steps to perform or a patch to
try to further track down the cause.
Another hint: another tack would be to try various kernels to narrow
down when this regression was introduced. There are various
pre-compiled kernel versions at
<http://snapshot.debian.org/package/linux-2.6/>. It would be
interesting to see whether 2.6.38 and 2.6.39 exhibit this.
