SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] net: wireless: bcm43xx: big_buffer_sem semaphore to mutex

Ok, built and tested, and it's actually faster! Although still not as
fast as bcm43xx or softmac or whatever the problem is, I was getting a
steady 200 kB/s (as opposed to 500 kB/s for bcm43xx with the same
file/server). I'm not sure if it was the absence of ipv6 or the
commits included in updating my git repository though. Either way, I'm
fairly happy that I'm out of dial-up speed territory.

It'd be nice to be able to fully shake loose whatever is causing the
speed drain - and I call it a drain since sometimes the connection
starts out much faster, but slowly throttles down to whatever speed
it'll stick at (used to be 40 kB/s, but now is 200 kB/s). It does seem
to be like a cap or limit, as in if I download two files, each one
will download at 100 kB/s.

If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it. I know that bcm43xx will
someday be dropped, and when that day comes, it'd be nice if people
with this hardware have at least similar performance with b43 (myself

Thanks again,
