Nice, I missed that one. It was replaced by
(because via uci-defaults it couldn't work reliably, as wifi config
wouldn't always even exist at this point)

Now the KEY_RFKILL needs to be pressed in order to enabled wifi, then
button-hotplug (or gpio-button-hotplug) will enabled the wifi.

This still leaves us without failsafe mode and hard-to-access UART, so
it'd make more sense to revive
for those devices (or is there an easy way to have wifi enabled in
failsafe mode?)
