That's not the right way to do it, especially as some "hotkeys" act
directly on the hardware. The correct way to do it is:
- have HAL do get/set on the hardware (either using custom APIs for each
models, like already implemented for Dells, or the generic kernel rfkill
- Make NetworkManager handle the get/set from the hardware
