Thanks Gary!  I should have seen that (and there was another thread
about Broadcom on the list too).  Fortunately this laptop doesn't have
Secure Boot (it's a MBP from 2010) so that didn't bite me.

I do seem to have an issue that when waking on suspend the wifi won't
come back up.  But I haven't done enough troubleshooting to provide any
helpful debugging information, and I may not care anyway (the "laptop"
is basically my desktop system).
