Hi,

I experienced, that the rfkill identifier for wlan changes after each 
supsend/resume cycle:

after boot, rfkill shows:

0: GPS: GPS

        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
5: phy1: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no

after suspend/resume:

0: GPS: GPS
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
4: hso-5: Wireless WAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
6: phy2: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no

after another cycle:

0: GPS: GPS
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
        Soft blocked: yes
        Hard blocked: no
4: hso-5: Wireless WAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no
7: phy3: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: no



Is this the intention or a bug? 

Further it means, if you soft block wlan via rfkill, the block is removed 
after resume, because there is a new device. Is this maybe a reason for heavy 
power consumption after resume?
