I have verified this patch, it can work on these boards.
The t30/t20 version on my Cardhu and Ventana is A02, the wireless chip
is bcm4329. I didn't test on other boards, and I'm not sure if the
bcm4330 can work.
When you test, you need to copy the latest brcmfmac firmware to the
filesystem.
Please get it from:
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/brcm80211#Firmware_installation-1

You can run "ifconfig -a" to show the "wlan0" device.
