Good day!

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?
