Comment (by daniel@64studio.com):

Confirmed, bcm43xx-fwcutter is still broken, but the driver is now
deprecated in favour of b43:

http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/

However, b43 isn't in the mainline kernel until 2.6.24.

We could try a newer version of bcm43xx-fwcutter from Sid contrib, but I
never found the old driver very reliable with a 4318 chipset anyway.

The linuxwireless.org site, home to the b43 driver, has disapeared, I'm
investigating.

Asked on IRC, the Linux Wireless site is temporarily at
http://linuxwireless.sipsolutions.net/

There is a backport of b43 available, but it requires 2.6.22 or later:
