Not if you can enter or exit HARD_BLOCK, you're not. If you cannot it is
fine. But if you can, you really need to rfkill_force_state() on resume,
even if you have a get_state() hook.

This might be something that needs explicit documentation, or something
wanting a fix.

It doesn't call get_state on resume right now, because rfkill_toggle_radio()
optimizes that away when called in forced mode.

And the rfkill core seems to be buggy when you call force_state() on resume,
which you guys didn't hit because you're not doing it yet. See my other
