Right now we have this line in GENERIC:
#device bwn # Broadcom BCM43xx wireless NICs
>From user POV all he need to do to make his broadcom wifi work, is
to uncomment this line and recompile his kernel. But this actually not sufficient - he also need to add device siba_bwn, and then install
net/bwn-firmware-kmod. But he will know that after recompiling his kernel when his wireless adapter will not work as expected :).
So may be we need to also add siba_bwn (commented out by default) in GENERIC and some reference about net/bwn-firmware-kmod?
