improved fix for kernel >= 3.2, with working multicast

The patch to enable compilation of net-wireless/broadcom-sta- against kernel >=3.2.0 breaks multicast for me; avahi browsing of local network services no longer works, for example.

Attached is an improved patch, based on a patch I found in the broadcom-wl package from Arch, which fixes the problem for me with gentoo-sources-3.2.1-r2.

Comment 1 Sylvain Munaut 2012-06-13 13:17:23 UTC
I have the exact same issue and the same fix. For me it broke IPv6 completely ...

Seems like a fairly bad issue, how come this has stayed 3 month without being fixed when a patch is attached ...

Included the patch. It should hit upstream as soon as a dev commits it. Please refer to #438622 for further details.

Until then, get them from my overlay; tbc in layman.
