I apologize; I assumed the documentation to be current and accurate.

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
