Interesting, because the driver hasn't changed at all since the base
2.6.34 was released:

dmcgee at galway ~/projects/linux-2.6 (master)
$ (find -name b43*) | xargs git diff v2.6.34..v2.6.34.2 | cat
<no output here>

The diff on drivers/net/wireless didn't look odd either; specific
(other) drivers changed but nothing that sticks out as affecting b43.
