You're correct. If the acer_wmi module isn't loaded while booting, one
of the problems I've noticed is that audio is very distorted and
scratchy. The problem immediately goes away after you modprobe
acer_wmi, but the wireless drops out again. After rmmod acer_wmi, the
audio interestingly is not impacted.
This seems to be a much bigger problem than I gave it credit for
