Currently NM reads rfkill state but does not manage rkill.
This is true for the NM we ship (v0.7.2.x), and for the latest release of NM today (v0.8.1)
- When wireless is switched to disabled, directoy or via networking switched to disabled, NM must issue 'rfkill block wifi'.
- When wireless is switched to enabled, directly or indirectly via networking switched to enabled, NM must issue 'rfkill unblock wifi'.
This achieves significant power savings -- at least with our chipset -- and allows us to remove a pile of workarounds discussed in #10532
