Bug #1148: BCM4311 wireless network adapter detected but not functional

* Author: archimedes.gaviola
* Status: In Progress
* Priority: Low
* Assignee: 
* Category: Driver
* Target version: 4.2.x

I have a mini-PCI wireless network adapter on my laptop that wasn't
detected on DragonFly 2.0.0 during installation. Since it wasn't
detected, what I did is performing the steps in the
bwi(4) manual http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/cgi/web-man?command=bwi&section=ANY
and download the firmware at
http://leaf.dragonflybsd.org/~sephe/bwi/v3.tbz. Now, the driver were
detected (Broadcom BCM4311) but seems not functional. It doesn't show
up after invoking ifconfig. Below is the dmesg output:

device_probe_and_attach: bwi0 attach returned 6
Preloaded elf module "/modules/if_bwi.ko" at 0xc07b93c8.
bwi0: <Broadcom BCM4311 802.11 Wireless Lan> mem 0x31300000-0x31303fff
irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1
bwi0: BBP: id 0x4311, rev 0x2, pkg 0
bwi0: MAC rev 13 is not supported
bwi0: no MAC was found

And as I try looking at the /usr/src/sys/dev/netif/bwi/if_bwi.c code,
BCM4311 is part of the supported device

          "Broadcom BCM4311 802.11 Wireless Lan" },
