They should only come from one server; currently bombadil.infradead.org
although it may change occasionally as I migrate services between

Filtering on List-Id: will give you false positives in some
circumstances (especially when people resend list messages to you
personally, which often happens to me on lists I don't pay much
attention to).

The best thing to filter on is the SMTP sender, which usually ends up in
a 'Return-Path' header. For the b43 list, that be something like
b43-dev-bounces+dwmw2=infradead.org at lists.infradead.org (with your own
email address, not mine).

In Exim's filter language, the correct check would be:

if "$sender_address" matches "b43-dev-bounces.*@lists.infradead.org" then
        save Maildir/.lists.b43/

In procmail I think it's something like:

* ^Return-Path: b43-dev-bounces.*@lists.infradead.org
