rfkill: prevent unnecessary event generation
Prevent unnecessary rfkill event generation when the state has not actually changed. These events have to be delivered to relevant userspace processes, causing these processes to wake up and do something while they could as well have slept. This obviously results in more CPU usage, longer time-to-sleep-again and therefore higher power consumption.
