FWIW, this is coming from the port of b44 to use the SSB bus which
I'm carrying in the wireless-dev tree.

SSB (i.e. "Sonics Silicon Backplane") is a bus used in Broadcom SoCs
including the b44 and bcm43xx hardware.  The SSB bus driver and the
b44 port to SSB is being developed by Michael Buesch, the maintainer of
the bcm43xx driver.  I've been carrying the b44 SSB port in my tree for
Michael's convenience.  Just an FYI for those wondering what SSB is...


P.S.  How about this patch?
