I need a service to stop or start rc.inet wla2_start(stop)

I mean something like that: when kernel reports
 b43-phy0: Radio hardware status changed to DISABLED
sevice should call 'rc.inet1 wlan2_stop' to clean things up. And after something like that
b43-phy0: Radio hardware status changed to ENABLED
service should call 'rc.inet1 wlan2_start'. More or less. Simply I want to mimic somehow switching on/off wifi with hardware button. Script rc.inet1 by itself can't do such thing. It simply does not restart by itself wifi.

"ifconfig wlan2 down "
will turn wlan2 off like a hardware switch

"ifconfig wlan2 up "
will switch it back on

on my system the wifi adapter picks up the old configuration no problem
but I'm running wicd

so you may need to run
"ifconfig wlan2 up;/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 wlan2_start "
to bring it back up
