Killswitch appear both through the Dell and the kernel layers.

Should the Dell backend in HAL just be removed? Mr Garrett has the answer, as he wrote the dell_laptop kernel module that does the rfkill dirty work.
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2009-03-02 19:46:04 EST
Note that the names of the kernel killswitches suck though, and this would need to be fixed before this bug is closed.
Comment 2 Matthew Garrett 2009-03-02 19:55:31 EST
Answer: Yes. What kind of names were you thinking of?
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2009-03-02 20:42:51 EST
Actually, scratch that, I don't intend on showing those anywhere in my UI. Let's remove it!
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2009-03-03 03:40:22 EST
+1 -- I think a lot of stuff like that in HAL can be removed. I think a USE_LEGACY_INTERFACES might be more kind, rather than just ripping out the code.

Fixed in hal-info:
* Tue Mar 03 2009 - Bastien Nocera <bnocera@redhat.com> - 20090202-3
- Remove the Dell native killswitches, replaced by the kernel killswitches
  in dell_laptop (#488177)

and in hal:
* Tue Mar 03 2009 - Bastien Nocera <bnocera@redhat.com> - 0.5.12-23.20090226git
- Remove Dell killswitches support, they're handled through the kernel's
  dell_laptop module instead now (#488177), removes requires for smbios-utils
