I also have such a problem since a couple of days. Also on a Dell
Latitude E6400. /sys/devices/virtual/rfkill/rfkill0/state is always 2
after boot. It changes between 2 and 1 at every change of the switch’s
position. This explains the above-mentioned wrong values for dell-wifi
when booting with wireless turned on (i.e., no blocking). If I boot with
wireless turned off (i.e., blocking on) then the initial 2 is correct
and everything works as it should.
