I may be wrong in some of the following.

When building the kernel module, an executable, b43-fwcutter is used to
extract a binary portion of the driver provided by the manufacturer.
This is used as an interface between the FreeBSD kernel and the BCM4318

The command line is like:  b43-fwcutter xxx.sys

FreeBSD uses the bwn driver as the interface between the TCP stack and
the chip.  The bwn driver is a wrapper around the code extracted from
the windows(?) driver.

Now, I am REALLY getting over my head.
