SubjectRe: [2.6.31-rc1] iwlagn (4965): regression when hardware rf switch is used

Now that I took a closer look...

These errors are a driver problem.

That is completely unrelated. You plugged in a USB device too :)

And that's actually expected, and/or a bug in the debian networking
scripts.
(You can trigger the same problem by doing
ifup wlan0
ip link set wlan0 down
ifup wlan0 -> error)

To get your network connection back automatically we will require
changes to userland tools to listen to rfkill events.

I guess something like that could be added to cfg80211:
phy0: taking interfaces down due to rfkill
