    I was confused, which is not surprising considering the shape of the Broadcom
    drivers landscape (http://wiki.debian.org/bcm43xx#Drivers).
    The broadcom-sta (wl.ko) driver indeed brings support for some recent WiFi
    adapters, but it doesn't content itself with conflicting with the module that
    supports the same hardware (brcm80211, brcmsmac): it also conflicts with the ssb
    module that is itself needed by a few other modules such as b43, b44. In short,
    it seems like wl.ko breaks more hardware support than it brings.
