This bug was fixed in the package urfkill -

urfkill (0.6.0~20150318.103828.5539c0d.1-0ubuntu9) hirsute; urgency=medium

  * Allow extra byte in rfkill event struct. This is related to a kernel
    change with commit id 14486c82612a177cb910980c70ba900827ca0894. The
    new byte was added to track the reason for rfkill events. (LP: #1922117)

  URFkill fails to read RFKILL events with latest kernel

Status in urfkill package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  The kernel has added a byte to the rfkill event struct to account for
  a possible reason field. See:

  urfkill is checking to make sure the rfkill event is exactly 8 bytes,
  and therefore failing when the reason field is included.
