Sorry - I missed this one.

I just tested it. With the patch, the warning is removed. As far as
system operation, the following is observed:

1. If b43 is loaded when using p54usb, then the hardware switch will
kill operation. This behavior is the same with or without this patch.

2. If b43 is unloaded, then p54usb no longer follows the hardware
switch, but operation can be killed with the rfkill user-space
utility. Again, this behavior does not depend on the patch.

Based on the code changes in the patch, it looks as if the radio is
turned off when the device is blocked, but I have no way to test that.

Christian - please add a
Tested-by: Larry Finger <> to the patch and
submit. This change should be in 2.6.32.
