Bug#538389: ITP: rfkill -- tool for enabling and disabling wireless devices

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Darren Salt <linux@youmustbejoking.demon.co.uk>

* Package name    : rfkill
  Version         : 0.1-4-g9429740
  Upstream Authors: Johannes Berg, Marcel Holtmann, Tim Gardner
* URL             : http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/rfkill
* Licence         : BSD-style single-clause
  Programming lang: C
  Description     : tool for enabling and disabling wireless devices

 rfkill is a simple tool for accessing the Linux rfkill device interface,
 which is used to enable and disable wireless networking devices, typically
 WLAN, Bluetooth and mobile broadband.
 rfkill uses /dev/rfkill, which is present in Linux kernel 2.6.31 and later.

I'm choosing a git snapshot over 0.1 because it contains some functionality
which will be of use in eeepc-acpi-scripts.
