card under Linux using the b43 or b43legacy driver.

  - Update downloaded firmware from version 666.2 to version 784.2. This
    release adds firmware for a number of newer devices. Not all of these
    are supported by b43, but with this change, the firmware will be
    available when any are supported. As Broadcom does not release details
    of the changes in their firmware, it is not known what enhancements have
    been made to the firmware for older devices.
