Have experience with any kernel 2.6.38 or newer to have full support. 
Not sure if any of the older ones do, but it's possible (just don't have 
personal experience).

I'm running fine with a BCM4313 driver over here. From my understanding 
the bcm43xx drivers are built into the kernel when Broadcom made them 
open source around a year ago. All you need is the linux-firmware 
package from the [core] repository if you are running an arch system and 
all should work smoothly.

Hope that was helpful,
