What is happening is the /usr/bin/dellWirelessCtl is what is being called and it
needs the dcdbas module to be loaded.  Since it is not, then the message.

Look here for libsmbios-bin-0.13.6-1.fc7:

[bpm]$ rpm -ql libsmbios-bin-0.13.6-1.fc7

I've added:

modprobe dcdbas

to /etc/rc.local so it gets loaded at boot.

Then the messages not only go away, but toggling the wireless kill switch works.
