Yes, but IMHO we should do that in a future patch. That patch will touch
every rfkill driver, so I'd rather we do that later. IMHO it is best to get
the most important stuff merged, first...

Then, in that future patch, we change the API, fix all in-tree drivers using
that API, and update the documentation to match the new API. For now, we
update the documentation to match the current API.

What do you think?
