Bug#580883: Allow 14e4:4320, it works

Package: firmware-b43-installer
Severity: normal


I've a Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
(rev 03) and it works fine with the fireware used by this package. I've
downloaded and extracted it by hand.

% lspci -s 10:12

And you should not block the installation of the package, if the suitable
hardware is not present. If you user wishs to install this fireware he
should get it. When it's unused and his device still doesn't work, it's
the problem of the user, he selected the wrong package.

Bye, Jörg.
