..worth noting that in my case:
Code: [Select]
$ lspci -nv
0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-Card

..that I needed to create a cpio/gz blacklist file to load as an overlay at boot:
Code: [Select]
$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
blacklist ssb
blacklist b43

..otherwise things would not work

Is it possible to get a x86_64 build of this module?
