Today I had some time on my hands and decided to get this working.
Which I did. So the difference between 2.6.37 and 2.6.38 is that now I
have to invoke rfkill to enable my wireless device, because pressing
Fn + F2 toggles the hard and soft lock states of the device _but_ only
to 'yes'. Pressing the key combination again will only remove the hard
lock. On 2.6.37 it would remove both. For example:

On 2.6.37:
# rfkill list 0 # wifi disabled
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes

# rfkill list 0 # wifi enabled (via Fn + F2)
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

(rfkill events)
1301758599.537508: idx 0 type 1 op 2 soft 0 hard 0
1301758600.561087: idx 2 type 1 op 2 soft 0 hard 0

On 2.6.38:
# rfkill list 0 # wifi disabled
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes

# rfkill list 0 # wifi enabled (via Fn + F2)
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no

(rfkill events)
1301758830.251541: idx 0 type 1 op 2 soft 1 hard 0

Is there supposed to be a piece of software that listens for these
events and toggles the soft state whenever the hard state changes?

Thanks,
