Re: kern/40279: import bwi(4), driver for Broadcom BCM43xx 802.11 wifi devices, including Apple's AirPort Extreme

   I'm a user of Compaq Pressario V3614AU with broadcom bcm4311 wifi card.

   I tried to use your patch to get it to work. That's what I have in my
   dmesg after recompiling the kernel (recompilation was done under
   FreeBSD machine for speed up):

   bwi0: interrupting at ioapic0 pin 22
   bwi0: BBP id 0x4311, BBP rev 0x2, BBP pkg 0
   bwi0: MAC rev 13 is not supported
   bwi0: no MAC was found

Unfortunately, some quick Googling suggests that bcm4311 cards require
a little more support from the driver than bwi(4) currently has.  You
could try adding 13 to the list bwi_sup_macrev in sys/dev/ic/bwi.c,
but you'd probably encounter another problem.  See, for example,
