  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.
