We have ath, now what about Broadcom?

Okay, so now I just figured out what the "ath" driver is. Sigh...
Of course, I find this out through searching for open source
drivers for the Broadcom chipset as used in the Linksys WPC54G
cardbus device, which I happen to have just bought.
I've already done quite a bit of Googling and searching through
the archives, and I haven't found anything obviously relevant to the
issue of drivers for the Broadcom chipset, at least not anything
I did find a lot of old references to drivers for this chipset in
the April timeframe, mostly having to do with people discovering that
Linksys was shipping access points & routers using this chipset,
using Linux for MIPS and BusyBox, but not providing the drivers
themselves under their GPL obligations.
Can anyone provide some pointers or links that would bring me
up-to-date on the current state of affairs on this subject,
especially as it related to FreeBSD or *BSD in general?
