Include brcm80211 driver/firmware into openSUSE 11.4

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Done

Description

Broadcom has released opensource drivers for some of new Wireless cards
That could be nice to get those cards working out of box in opensuse 11.4 for snupported bcm/b43 devices
I read that this will be included into 2.6.37 but I cannot find it in milestone 6
