[ Alberto Milone ]
* New upstream release (LP: #923809).
* Add 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch:
  - Make sure the patch can always be applied.
* Add 0005-Add-support-for-Linux-3.4.0.patch:
  - Thanks to Eugene San for the patch (LP: #994255).
* debian/control:
  - Drop all the dependencies on the linux-headers.
* debian/dkms.conf.in:
  - Always apply all patches (LP: #1020059).

[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Silence the errors from rmmod about the modules not being
    loaded. This is fully expected, and just causes confusion,
    as well as autopkgtest failures.
  - Mirror the actions of the installed modprobe.d files,
    i.e. rmmod the b43 driver and try to modprobe wl, so
    that this package works right after installation.
    (LP: #1065827)
  - Drop duplicate #DEBHELPER# token. It does not currently
    expand to anything, but it looks confusing.
* debian/rules, debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases:
  - Drop parsing of src/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c, as the current
    upstream version dropped all useful vendor matches in its
    pci_device_id struct and now has a broken modalias. Keep
    a static debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases instead
    which matches on any Broadcom network device (vendor 14E4
    class 02 subclass 80). This brings back a proper
    "Modaliases:" package header (LP: #1089943).

35. By Alberto Milone on 2012-04-23

* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Blacklist brcmfmac, brcmsmac and bcma so that they don't
    conflict with the closed driver (LP: #873117)

34. By Scott Kitterman on 2012-04-21

* Update to match switch to PAE kernel by default in precise for i386
  (LP: #986475)
  - Depend on linux-headers-generic-pae on i386 instead of
    linux-headers-generic so that the right headers are available to build
    the driver
* Drop long obsolete lpia specific depends on linux-headers-lpia

33. By Alberto Milone on 2011-11-22

Add 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch.

32. By Michael Terry on 2011-06-01

* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.prerm:
  - Don't error out if we can't remove bcmwl module. LP: #776439
* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Unconditionally update the blacklist (i.e. even on upgrade).
    LP: #776165

31. By Michael Terry on 2011-06-01

commit Daniel van Vugt's fix to not error out while trying to remove bcmwl module

30. By Michael Terry on 2011-06-01

commit Daniel van Vugt's fix to unconditionally update the blacklist

29. By Martin Pitt on 2011-04-18

debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst: Also blacklist brcm80211, to ensure
it actually is getting used. Thanks to Daniel van Vugt for the patch!
(LP: #747002)
