I have updated an older Acer Aspire One laptop to a recent CURRENT r300951.
Should the BCM4312 now working? It says in dmesg:

$ dmesg | fgrep bwn0
siba_bwn0: <Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g Wireless> mem 0x57100000-0x57103fff irq

$ ifconfig wlan0

        scanvalid 60 wme bintval 0
        groups: wlan 

in /etc/rc.conf I have:

ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP"

Do I miss anything? Thanks
