That's really an unrelated topic. b43 and brcm80211 support different
kinds of devices whereas both devices may share certain sub-devices.
Like the radio device (b2056) in this case.
So it's not just a matter of "cleaning up" brcm80211. That doesn't give
us support for old SSB based N-PHY devices, because brcm80211 does not
support them at all.
