  hardware switch of wireless not working for Centrino Advanced-N 6235

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have ubuntu 13.10  64-bit running on a HP ZBook 15. The notebook uses an Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6235 (rev 24) wireless adapter.
  The wireless networking principally works. The issue is that it is not possible to enable or disable it using the hardware button. The only way is the software control (clicking on "Enable Wi-Fi").

  BTW, when I click on "Enable Wi-Fi", it indicates the changes status
  of the wifi radio by changing the colour of the light on the hardware
  button. (This is the correct and expected behaviour. What is wrong is
  that I can not change the status by pressing the hardware button.)
