[Bug 1519900] Re: Lenovo Yoga 700 ideapad_laptop driver rfkill switch always on



i'm already running 4.2, i believe its the default in 15.10? 
uname -a
Linux shlompad 4.2.0-19-generic #23-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 11 11:39:30 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

regarding apport-collect, according to this page:

"Apport collects potentially sensitive data, such as core dumps, stack
traces, and log files. They can contain passwords, credit card numbers,
serial numbers, and other private material."

I would therefore very much like to avoid running it. Apologies. I can
compile a ideapad_laptop.c driver myself with the added entry for "YOGA
700-14ISK" to confirm it solves the issue, if you prefer. If this is a a
no-go for you, then i apologize for wasting your time.

  Lenovo Yoga 700 ideapad_laptop driver rfkill switch always on

Status in linux-lts-utopic package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  As requested by Pilot6, i'm opening a new bug:

  The bug is that there is no rfkill switch on this laptop, so the
  driver exports the rfkill switch is always on, which prevents the
  NetworkManager service from starting to configure the WiFi.

  this is an immidiate follow up of https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-lts-utopic/+bug/1397021
  The exact same issue was resolved for that Lenovo model by adding that model to the hardcoded list in ideapad_laptop.c

  Here is another model that needs to be added to the same list:

  System Information
      Manufacturer: LENOVO
      Product Name: 80QD
      Version: Lenovo YOGA 700-14ISK

  I think a dynamic list of models might be a better idea for this
  driver, as there are likely more models without hardware kill
  switches, which are still not in that list.
