"Broadcom would like to announce the initial release of a
fully-open Linux driver for it's latest generation of 11n chipsets.
The driver, while still a work in progress, is released as full
source and uses the native mac80211 stack. It supports multiple
current chips (BCM4313, BCM43224, BCM43225) as well as providing a
framework for supporting additional chips in the future, including
mac80211-aware embedded chips.
"The README and TODO files included with the sources provide
more details about the current feature set, known issues, and plans
for improving the driver.
"The driver is currently available in staging-next git tree"
