I can't say exactly what is missing but all I know is I need the

11.1Beta4 and failed:

ACPI - The current package by Oliver Beng on the Build service

This should no longer be needed, as it already is in the opensuse 11.1
kernel package by default, as it is part of mainline already.

diff-ing that one against the in-kernel asus_acpi shows that it does not share
much with the original module except for the name and basic infrastructure.
1459 asus_acpi.c (from kernel)
1907 asus_acpi.c (hacked up for eeecp)
diff: 675 lines ...
