Bug#601976: firmware-ralink: Wireless network unusable when kernel loads with the wireless function button powered off

Package: firmware-ralink
Version: 0.27
Severity: important

After a safe-upgrade on my testing system on 2010-10-23, when the system starts
with the wireless function button powered off in my laptop, the network
interface appears disabled, and it's impossible to enable it.

If the system starts with the wireless function button powered on, the network
interface works normally, and you can enable and disable it powered on and off
the wireless function button.

This is the output of "lshw" about mi wireless card:

# lshw -C network
