acer_acpi project is a Linux kernel module to allow control of some of the hardware on later model Acer (and other Wistron OEM) laptops.

acer_acpi was originally developed by Mark Smith to enable the wireless LAN card of an Acer Aspire 5024 under 64-bit Linux. The previous solution to hardware access on these laptops, Olaf Tauber's acerhk, relied on BIOS calls to work - unfortunately, it is not possible to call a 32-bit BIOS routine from a 64 bit operating system, so acer_acpi was born.
