So this could be some kernel regression. Probably related to your
machine. Too bad, as it means I won't be able to resolve this problem.
You should bisect kernel marking 3.2 as GOOD and whatever version
ArchLinux uses as BAD. This will of course require compiling kernel
for many times (10? 20?) and trying version by version with the
Broadcom's wl driver.
