[PATCH][Natty SRU] acer-wmi: does not set persistence state by rfkill_init_sw_state

SRU Justification

Impact: Commit 466449c introduces a regression in acer-wmi that can
result in soft blocks being incorrectly applied to rfkill switches in
some circumstances. On the Fujitsu AMILO Li 2727 this results in wifi
being soft blocked at boot, and since the wlan hotkey isn't working
correctly this block can only be removed using the command line.

Fix: Patch from upstream which fixes the regression.

Test case: Boot affected machine and observe soft block state on wlan
rfkill switches. Tested by reporter on LP #710738.
