I can see the device but not access it (reported it already to the 
eeepc-laptop maintainer):

eee:/# cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill2/name
eee:/# echo 0 > /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill2/state
bash: echo: write error: Operation not permitted

Nevertheless I've updated the patch to use rfkill if available plus a 
few minor changes.
