47. By Alberto Milone on 2013-01-10

   Thanks to Robert Hooker for suggesting the patch.

46. By Alberto Milone on 2013-01-09

* 0006-add-support-for-linux-3.8.0.patch:

45. By Alberto Milone on 2013-01-08

* 0006-add-support-for-linux-3.8.0.patch:
  - Add support for Linux 3.8 (LP: #1095751).

44. By Martin Pitt on 2012-12-13

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)

43. By Alberto Milone on 2012-12-11

* New upstream release (LP: #923809):
  - Added 43142 support.
  - Added 4331 support.
* debian/control:
  - depend on the different flavours of the linux-headers.
* Refresh 0002-Makefile.patch and 0001-MODULE_LICENSE.patch.

42. By Martin Pitt on 2012-11-07

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.

41. By Martin Pitt on 2012-10-12

* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst: 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)
* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst: Drop duplicate #DEBHELPER# token. It
  does not currently expand to anything, but it looks confusing.

40. By Alberto Milone on 2012-07-05

* 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch:
  - Make sure the patch can always be applied.
* debian/dkms.conf.in:
  - Always apply all patches (LP: #1020059).

39. By Alberto Milone on 2012-06-20

* New upstream release:
  - Add Monitor mode.
  - Add cfg80211 API support. The choice of API is
    done at compile time. If kernel version >= 2.6.32,
    cfg80211 is used, otherwise wireless extension
    is used. (End users should notice little
  - Fix problem with triggered a reboot when the
    wireless was disabled using the function key.
  - Fix a kernel panic observed on some 64-bit
