I'm not sure that there really is an 802.11b/g device with ID 14e4:4312. There
are two flavors of BCM4312, one that is 802.11a/b/g (14e4:4312), and an
802.11b/g device with ID 14e4:4315, which is the LP PHY. I suspect that the
confusion over the two BCM4312 items led to the duplicate entry in this table.
