Tim --

There's one other patch to the broadcom Makefile that also was applied 
directly to the git tree and is no longer present.  I thought I 
mentioned it as well in our IRC conversation.  I've attached it to this 

Let me know if you'd like me to formally submit it.  Otherwise I'll 
re-spin my SRU assuming that both the Makefile and the License patch 
will be applied at unpack-stamp time.
