SRU Justification

Impact: Some Broadcom B43 adapters do not correctly co-exist with bluetooth.

Patch Description: Quirk the bogus adapters and clear the co-exist flag.

Patch: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-hardy.git;a=commit;h=793448d9ed7419dff12d4b9a8e44e4e367b45a2a

Test Case: B43 802.11 signals stomp on bluetooth.

Please see my reports in LP Bug #258450 "OOPS: Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference" which have been occurring since updating to 2.6.24-21.40, causing the Bluetooth drivers to fail and also often taking out *all* keyboard input to user-space, as well as making the system progressively more unresponsive.

Kernel team, this was fixed in an SRU in hardy, but never closed in intrepid/jaunty. Should this be fixed?
