$ sudo modprobe eeepc_laptop
FATAL: Error inserting eeepc_laptop (/lib/modules/2.6.32-ARCH/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-laptop.ko): No such device

Another user has reported this on a EeePC 1000H, I'm using a 1005HA. Here is the original thread:

The cause is, that new _OSI for windows 7 in the 2.6.32 kernel added. The EEE PC ACPI doesn't knew about windows 7. Patch is:
acpi/blacklist: enable OSI(Linux) on newer eeepc
patch from git://git.iksaif.net/acpi4asus.git.

Here is another patch, that fix rfkill-handler too:

status on latest .32 and .33?

Not there. We schould wait for new WMI-based driver (i have no idea when it will be done). Workaround: add acpi_osi=Linux to boot options.
