Bug Description

Press wireless hotkey on HP's latest generation laptops generate two rfkill events, prevent airplane mode from turning off.

One event is from intel-hid and the other one is from hp-wireless.

Commit "hwdb: Mask rfkill event from intel-hid on HP platforms", to only use rfkill from hp-wireless.

With the one-liner fix, press wireless hotkey only generate one rfkill event, hence airplane mode works as expected.

[Regression Potential]
Low, use hp-wireless over intel-hid is anticipated.

any regression would likely result in missed rfkill events.


this is fixed upstream by commit d8a9dd0dc17df77229d079afe29c05ae4a9e2ae9 which is not included in any version yet, so this is needed for f and g.

@kaihengfeng is this needed on b and/or x as well?

@Dan, is it possible for you to speed up the SRU process for this fix please? We have an OEM platform which is being blocked by this issue and we are targeting mid-July for its final image. Thank you.

I think we can skip B/X, I haven't seen any wireless hotkey bug report for these two series.

@chih it's uploaded, at this point it's waiting for review by the ~ubuntu-sru team. Out of my hands now.
