Bug Description

The two rfkill tests now fail in yakkety since linux got upgraded to 4.8, like in in
https://objectstorage.prodstack4-5.canonical.com/v1/AUTH_77e2ada1e7a84929a74ba3b87153c0ac/autopkgtest-yakkety/yakkety/i386/n/network-manager/20160922_091844@/log.gz .

It still builds fine:
$ sudo make -f debian/tests/Makefile fake-rfkill
make -C /lib/modules/4.8.0-15-generic/build KBUILD_SRC=/lib/modules/4.8.0-15-generic/build M=/tmp/autopkgtest.zD5lki/build.WwA/real-tree/debian/tests
make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-4.8.0-15-generic'
  Building modules, stage 2.
  MODPOST 1 modules

But it can't be loaded:
$ sudo insmod debian/tests/fake-rfkill.ko
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module debian/tests/fake-rfkill.ko: Unknown symbol in module
$ dmesg
[ 7779.796145] fake_rfkill: Unknown symbol rfkill_unregister (err 0)

"modprobe rfkill" fixes this -- the built .ko already declares that dependency properly, it just doesn't get loaded by "insmod".

  [ Aron Xu ]
  * Imported Upstream version 1.2.4
  * Update patches for new upstream release:
    - Filter-DNS-servers-to-add-to-dnsmasq-based-on-availa.patch: not needed
    - Order-IPv6-nameservers-before-IPv4-for-dns-plugins-d.patch: not needed
    - libnm-don-t-require-initialized-out_encrypted-argume.patch: merged upstream
    - cli-initialize-connection-list-in-do_device_connect.patch: merged upstream
    - rename due to gbp-pq:
      Don-t-block-network.target-on-NetworkManager-wait-on.patch =>
    - post-release cherry-picks:
      - wifi-clear-WiFi-requested_scan-if-suppl-exits.patch
      - wifi-clear-WiFi-requested_scan-if-suppl-goes-INACTIV.patch
    - refreshed remaining ones

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/tests/wpa-dhclient: Don't assume that the IPv6 prefix length from
    the DHCP server is /64. (LP: #1609898)
  * debian/tests/*rfkill*: Load fake-rfkill.ko's dependencies before trying to
    insserv it. (LP: #1626568)
  * debian/tests/killswitches-no-urfkill: Make the script work with set -e, so
    that we don't try to run tests after compile errors.
  * Switch back to dns=dnsmasq for Ubuntu 16.10. We still don't have a DNS
    plugin for resolved, and don't want to break domain-specific DNS servers
    for the final release.
