First reported in:
[0] Linux 3.15: WLAN regression on WRL54GL/B43?

Fixed by:
[1] b43: fix frequency reported on G-PHY with /new/ firmware

The patch has yet to hit Linus's tree, then I'll be applied to older
(stable) trees. So hopefully you will see this fix in 3.15.2 or

For now you have to stick to 3.14, or temporarily replace your
firmware (in /lib/firmware/b43) with the older version 478.104 (if you
know how).
