Kernel 2.6.30 and new rfkill support in Sony Vaio Z-series and Linux

Matthew Garrett's work on rfkill support for Sony Vaios has been proposed for merging into the main 2.6.30 kernel:

Newer Sony Vaios provide a new API for accessing platform functionality. It
consists of a set of standardised methods for enabling events and performing
queries. These are each identified by a unique handle. This patch adds
support for calling functions based on their handle and ports the existing
code for these machines over to it.

Newer Vaios provide a full featured rfkill implementation via their
platform methods. Add support for enumerating the available devices and
providing rfkill access to them. Support for the physical kill switch is
added, with the devices moving into the HARD_BLOCKED state when toggled.
