confirmed on latitude d800, bcm4306, ndiswrapper

just a few tips to complete mlaverdiere tricks :

instead of creating a new init.d script, just add the commands in /etc/rc.local
much easier than adding new init.d and rc links there ;)

regarding /etc/acpi/ stuff, the file '99-bcm43xxactivation' needs to be
named something.sh (the .sh part is important, else it won't be used at
all), so use /etc/acpi/resume.d/99-bcm43xxactivation.sh for example.

and /etc/dbus/event.d/25NetworkManager is actually
/etc/dbus-1/event.d/25NetworkManager on my laptop

this bug makes wireless unusable by default for many laptops, was
reported in february and still no fix released, would be nice that
someone takes care of it.
