Subject[patch 047/100] acer-wmi: Blacklist Acer Aspire One
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Carlos Corbacho <carlos@strangeworlds.co.uk>

upstream commit: a74dd5fdabcd34c93e17e9c7024eeb503c92b048

The Aspire One's ACPI-WMI interface is a placeholder that does nothing,
and the invalid results that we get from it are now causing userspace
problems as acer-wmi always returns that the rfkill is enabled (i.e. the
radio is off, when it isn't). As it's hardware controlled, acer-wmi
isn't needed on the Aspire One either.

Thanks to Andy Whitcroft at Canonical for tracking down Ubuntu's userspace
issues to this.
