acer_acpi & seg faults

In my attempts to modify acer_acpi and add it the required key pooling, I bumped into a problem...

Segmentation faults, lots of them...

I tried the latest acer_acpi code and had similar results.

Reason for seg faults:
kernel 2.6.27 - at least the one in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex.

Reverting to 2.6.26 made the seg faults go away but the modified module still has not shown signs of doing what I told it to do... :S
