Otherwise lockdep complains...

[ INFO: possible circular locking dependency detected ]
2.6.36-rc2-git4 #12
-------------------------------------------------------
kworker/0:3/3630 is trying to acquire lock:
 (rtnl_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffff813396c7>] rtnl_lock+0x12/0x14

but task is already holding lock:
 (rfkill_global_mutex){+.+.+.}, at: [<ffffffffa014b129>]
rfkill_switch_all+0x24/0x49 [rfkill]

which lock already depends on the new lock.

the existing dependency chain (in reverse order) is:
