Bug introduced in 11-0-RELEASE.

I have eMachines eM250-1915 and it is Broadcom based wireless NIC.  I have used
it with NDIS driver until 10.2-RELEASE.  After upgrading to 11.0 and
re-creating NDIS kernel module, it no longer works.

kldload mentions about ndis0 but ifconfig does not show driver become available
like below on 11.0.

% kldload /boot/modules/bcmwl5_sys.ko
