I have a laptop that contains a Broadcom BCM4311 wireless interface. 
This device requires firmware to be loaded, so I installed b43-fwcutter.

I looked at:

and the chip appears to be supported. The firmware loads correctly under 
2.6.27-9-generic, but does not load under 2.6.27-11-generic.

lsmod shows that there is a wl loaded under 2.6.27-9, while none exists 
under 2.6.27-11.

It has bee awhile since I set up the first link, so it may be an obvious 
omission on my part. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I also wanted to look at the difference between 27-9 and 27-11, but 
could not find the sources for 27-9. The linux-source link is for the 
current version, and I cannot decode how to get to the .diff files for 
other versions.
