36. By Alberto Milone

[ Alberto Milone ]
* New upstream release (LP: #923809).
* Add 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch:
  - Make sure the patch can always be applied.
* Add 0005-Add-support-for-Linux-3.4.0.patch:
  - Thanks to Eugene San for the patch (LP: #994255).
* debian/control:
  - Drop all the dependencies on the linux-headers.
* debian/dkms.conf.in:
  - Always apply all patches (LP: #1020059).

[ Martin Pitt ]
* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Silence the errors from rmmod about the modules not being
    loaded. This is fully expected, and just causes confusion,
    as well as autopkgtest failures.
  - Mirror the actions of the installed modprobe.d files,
    i.e. rmmod the b43 driver and try to modprobe wl, so
    that this package works right after installation.
    (LP: #1065827)
  - Drop duplicate #DEBHELPER# token. It does not currently
    expand to anything, but it looks confusing.
* debian/rules, debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases:
  - Drop parsing of src/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c, as the current
    upstream version dropped all useful vendor matches in its
    pci_device_id struct and now has a broken modalias. Keep
    a static debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases instead
    which matches on any Broadcom network device (vendor 14E4
    class 02 subclass 80). This brings back a proper
    "Modaliases:" package header (LP: #1089943).

35. By Alberto Milone

* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Blacklist brcmfmac, brcmsmac and bcma so that they don't
    conflict with the closed driver (LP: #873117)

34. By Scott Kitterman

* Update to match switch to PAE kernel by default in precise for i386
  (LP: #986475)
  - Depend on linux-headers-generic-pae on i386 instead of
    linux-headers-generic so that the right headers are available to build
    the driver
* Drop long obsolete lpia specific depends on linux-headers-lpia

33. By Alberto Milone

Add 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch.

32. By Michael Terry

* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.prerm:
  - Don't error out if we can't remove bcmwl module. LP: #776439
* debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
  - Unconditionally update the blacklist (i.e. even on upgrade).
    LP: #776165

31. By Michael Terry

commit Daniel van Vugt's fix to not error out while trying to remove bcmwl module

30. By Michael Terry

commit Daniel van Vugt's fix to unconditionally update the blacklist

29. By Martin Pitt

debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst: Also blacklist brcm80211, to ensure
it actually is getting used. Thanks to Daniel van Vugt for the patch!
(LP: #747002)
