[packman] The broadcom-wl driver doesn't work anymore with my BCM4313 card

Dear Packman team!

 I've installed your broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop package on an openSUSE 12.1 box. 
The wl.ko driver included in that package worked very well, until the latest 
kernel (and driver package) udpate. Since then it can join SSIDs, but after a 
few seconds data transfer ceases on the connection, therefore I had to revert 
to the brcmsmac driver included in openSUSE out of the box. My card works well 
with that driver, but ad-hoc, promiscuous and other exotic modes are not 
supported. Did you include a new version of the wl driver or can it be a 
kernel bug. Can you take a look at it?

Thank you in advance,
