I'm sorry for the long delay but I can use the laptop only on weekend.
Here is the output:

FATAL: Error inserting wistron_btns
No such device

It looks like this model is rather different, maybe not a Wistron design
at all.

I would prefer you to test against Linux 3.0, but it appears that the
model detection has not changed since 2.6.26.

# dmesg

Please build and test the attached driver (make&&   insmod
amilo-rfkill.ko).  It provides a standard rfkill device which you can
control with e.g. the 'rfkill' command, and will only bind to specific

If this works, I'll submit the code upstream.


Hi Ben,
Thank you for your code!

Before I built the module (Kernel 2.6.32) I had to insert the include
line #include<asm/io.h>  ( ->  inb()-function ?)
That should be<linux/io.h>, actually.

With Kernel 2.6.26 I couldn't even built the module.

But loading of the module failed:
# insmod amilo-rfkill.ko
insmod: error inserting 'amilo-rfkill.ko': -1 No such device
Sorry, I made the driver look for product name "AMILO A1655" but that is
actually the board name.  Could you try changing DMI_PRODUCT_NAME to

Yep, that's it. Runs fine!
