Comment 17 for bug 182490

It does look like the patch mentioned here is in the upstream kernel, but not available in the Jaunty kernel. This may be something that will have to wait for the Karmic release but that's something for the kernel team to decide. Below is the usptream git commit id for them to reference:

    eeepc-laptop: Implement rfkill hotplugging in eeepc-laptop

    The Eee implements rfkill by logically unplugging the wireless card from the

    PCI bus. Despite sending ACPI notifications, this does not appear to be

    implemented using standard ACPI hotplug - nor does the firmware provide the

    _OSC method required to support native PCIe hotplug. The only sensible choic

    appears to be to handle the hotplugging directly in the eeepc-laptop driver.

    Tested successfully on a 700, 900 and 901.
