Please test the upcoming 1.0.6 version of eeepc-acpi-scripts that has 
support for models using the RaLink wireless adapter.

> 1. echo options pciehp pciehp_slot_with_bus=1 pciehp_force=1

This is needed, yes.

> 2. echo pciehp >> /etc/modules

I guess this is not needed. pciehp should be loaded by udev.

> 3. patch -p0 < toggle-wifi.diff
> Patch for 3. is attached. It also changes names for module and interface.
> It works like a charm on my 901.

The version in Git has this stuff sorted out, without breaking on 
models without the RaLink adapter.
