Hello all,
I am trying to expand the bwn driver to support some newer-model Broadcom 
chips, like the BCM4331 in my machine. These chips require newer firmware, and 
so I have modified bwn-firmware-kmod to use a newer firmware. However, I do not 
have a device with one of the chips currently supported, so I cannot be sure 
that this change won't break things. Do any of you have a device that you are 
willing to try with the new firmware?

The changes are quite simple:
