I don't think we're going to fix Linux kernel bugs ourselves, so please add this to the known issues page (note: the brand & model of the laptop is most likely more relevant that the Wi-Fi adapter details). I see plenty of similar reports online, so let's assume we don't need to report this upstream, ourselves.

Please add this to the known issues page. I think we dropped this duty from frontdesk's tasks so I am assigning this to FT, and they can decide what to do about it?

Or actually, I'd rather assign this to doc writers.

All the WhisperBack reports that we received with the Wi-Fi adapter in 2018 add working Wi-Fi, so I'm rejecting this ticket.

It's great to check this data to prioritize our work :)
Note that this data is only relevant to the problem at hand if the acer_wmi module was loaded.
