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?
Tinderboxing kills... the drives.
