  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * New upstream release (LP: #923809).
  * Add 0004-Add-support-for-Linux-3.2.patch:
    - Make sure the patch can always be applied.
  * Add 0005-Add-support-for-Linux-3.4.0.patch:
    - Thanks to Eugene San for the patch (LP: #994255).
  * debian/control:
    - Drop all the dependencies on the linux-headers.
  * debian/
    - Always apply all patches (LP: #1020059).

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.postinst:
    - Silence the errors from rmmod about the modules not being
      loaded. This is fully expected, and just causes confusion,
      as well as autopkgtest failures.
    - Mirror the actions of the installed modprobe.d files,
      i.e. rmmod the b43 driver and try to modprobe wl, so
      that this package works right after installation.
      (LP: #1065827)
    - Drop duplicate #DEBHELPER# token. It does not currently
      expand to anything, but it looks confusing.
  * debian/rules, debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases:
    - Drop parsing of src/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c, as the current
      upstream version dropped all useful vendor matches in its
      pci_device_id struct and now has a broken modalias. Keep
      a static debian/bcmwl-kernel-source.modaliases instead
      which matches on any Broadcom network device (vendor 14E4
      class 02 subclass 80). This brings back a proper
      "Modaliases:" package header (LP: #1089943).
