Yes, but I never understood why that matters. If you've got
compat-wireless "rfkill" loaded then the original rfkill can't be loaded
anyway. And their symbols would probably clash anyway if the original is
built in, in which case you can't use compat.

You haven't renamed cfg80211's sysfs either, so why rfkill?
