To clarify a bit:
1) There was originally a plan to add some generic WMI based autoloading
to the kernel. The patches to do this (which I have floating about
somewhere) where dependent on other driver core changes that have not
yet made it in (still), unless I can come up with an alternative
2) Loading of acer-wmi is currently done by DMI matching - look at the
MODULE_ALIAS line. This is only set for Acer laptops, as I'm not sure
yet about trying to autoload the driver on lots of non Acer hardware.
