Why would this be needed? The proposed changes seem to make this behave
just like CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211_BRCM=y..

But as far as this one is concerned, wouldn't it be sufficient to
replace all of this patch with those four lines and just set
CONFIG_DRIVER_NL80211_BRCM=y instead of introducing a new duplicated
build parameter for this?
