It works on the Raspberry Pi Zero-W, you just need the firmware files
at the right location.  Grab for example this file:


unpack it with

  ar -p firmware-brcm80211_20161130-3+rpt1_all.deb data.tar.xz | tar xf - \*43430\*

copy the two files brcmfmac43430-sdio.{txt,bin} to /libdata/firmware/if_bwfm/ and

The firmware files can probably also be found on github, that .deb up
there is just where I got them from a while ago.
