I am apparently wrong, at least about LSI, it still belongs to broadcom, thanks!

Long before broadcom acquired LSI and 3ware, I was awfully displeased by their WiFi chip: infamous BCM43xx. It is 32 bit chip sitting on 64 bit bus. No [sane] open source programmer will be happy to write driver for that. For ages we were using ndis wrapper…. As much as I disliked broadcom for their wireless chipset, I loved them for their ethernet one. And I recollect this was long ago before acquisition by broadcom of LSI and 3ware. Or am I wrong?
