Bug Description

While testing the kernel 3.5.0-6 from quantal backports to precise (QA testing), the wifi BCM4313 doesn't work.

The package in 12.04 repositories is 5.100.82.38+bdcom+0ubuntu6.1 (precise-updates).

A workaround is installing locally the version 5.100.82.112+bdcom+0ubuntu2 found in 12.10 (quantal) repositories.
