i have some news: i went back to kernel version 2.6.26 and it worked
so i moved forward kernel by kernel and it works till kernel 2.6.32;
first kernel that shows up the problem is 2.6.33 and, at module loading
time i can see for the first time, after loading firmware, the following
debug info (don't know if it's helpful but same message happears in
every non-working kernel from 2.6.33 to 2.6.37):

"b43-phy0 warning: Invalid max-TX-power value in SPROM"
