Default UBUNTU: SAUCE: enable rfkill for rtl8192se driver

SRU JUSTIFICAITON
===================
On thinkpad Edge with RTL8192SE wifi device, wifi on/off hotkey does
not work. Enabled RFKILL in the rtl8192se module to enable this
hotkey.

IMPACT
=======
The change is limited to Makefile, it enables -DCONFIG_RTL_RFKILL
(-DCONFIG_CFG_80211 also need to be enabled as per comment in the
Makefile).

TEST
=====
The new driver was tested by Steve Magoun and reported to work. Test
kernel can be found in,
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~manjo/maveric/lp640992/

The following changes since commit 00ee3793e9b153e3655a58fed9cd8b26f9eb5c6b:

Hopefully enabling this does not break some hardware that took the chip but
maybe wired differently. I assume we don't have any hardware other than the TP
Edge with a rtl8192se? Just to see it there (still) works. Tentatively
