Rebooting after disabling wifi leaves wifi in wrong state (enabled but doesn't show networks)

Bug #1362133 reported by Brendan Donegan on 2014-08-27

urfkill (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1.) Open the network indicator
2.) Toggle the Wi-Fi switch to 'Off'
3.) Reboot the device
4.) Open the network indicator

Expected result:

Wi-Fi is either disabled and shows no networks, or is enabled and shows networks

Actual result:

Wi-Fi is enabled and shows no networks. Toggling it on and off returns it to normal.

The output of nmcli is this:

nmcli d
/ril_1 gsm disconnected
/ril_0 gsm disconnected
wlan0 802-11-wireless unavailable

The top bar icon shows that wifi is off but indicator-network shows it to be on.

Jussi was testing n krillin, which has a known issue with wifi rfkill. so jussis report is unrelated to this one.

Brendan, next time you see this happen please provide the following info from the device shell as phablet user:

$ nmcli d
$ $ dbus-send --print-reply /com/canonical/indicator/network org.gtk.Actions.Describe string:wifi.enable
$ dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.URfkill /org/freedesktop/URfkill/WLAN org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get string:org.freedesktop.URfkill.Killswitch string:state

And I will emphasize: next time you see this happening on _mako_

On Mako the command outputs are exactly the same.

OK, so we have the saved-states being wrong after boot again.

Note, I marked this a duplicate of bug #1321627 as we have a rather large pending landing for urfkill which has re-written much of the code that deals with enabling/disabling individual killswitches in addition to FlightMode.
