Re: NetBSD and BCM4312 rev01

   as of subject, i want to use NetBSD on my brand semi-new netbook which
   has a bcm4312 (rev 01) card, which works nicely under gnu/linux and
   which would work under openbsd (as far as i red).

That device should be supported by the bwi(4) driver, which is not
enabled by default in the kernel, but which can be enabled by building
a new kernel from CVS HEAD with

bwi* at pci? dev ? function ?

in your kernel configuration.  If you try this, let me know how it
goes, and show me your dmesg output; if it works, and seems to be
stable, let the mailing list know that you'd like to see it enabled by
default in NetBSD 6!
