Answering my own question, I fixed the problem on my U160 by abusing /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf. I replaced:

    install wl /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install wl $CMDLINE_OPTS

with:

    softdep wl pre: acer_wmi
    install wl /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install wl $CMDLINE_OPTS && rflist unblock all
    install acer_wmi /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install acer_wmi $CMDLINE_OPTS && /sbin/modprobe -r acer_wmi
