I am confused.

There is
http://softmac.sipsolutions.net/softmac-snapshot.tar.bz2
at http://softmac.sipsolutions.net/SoftMAC,
page also says "Projects using this layer: * Broadcom 43xx driver"

but Broadcom driver page at ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/bcm43xx/snapshots/softmac/
has ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/bcm43xx/snapshots/softmac/ieee80211softmac-20060107.tar.bz2
which is not the same. For example, ieee80211softmac.h file exists in both
tarballs but is not identical.

Suppose one wants to use softmac in a project. What tarball contains
the bleeding edge of softmac?
