I have successfully loaded the opensource brcm80211 driver kernel module on Lenovo S10-3t and is able to connect to wireless. But the driver fails to reconnect if the screen is locked and also it crashes the system on next reboot.
However, I have the same tainting problem with the proprietary driver (latest release) available in Broadcom's website.

Does anybody have success getting the Broadcom Wifi driver for BCM43xx to work on the recent MeeGo 22.214.171.124?
I installed the netbook image on my Asus EeePc 1015 who is using the BRCM 4313 (0x14e4:0x4727). The kernel object compiles without any problems however it cannot be loaded because of missing symbols. The security module is not the issue. The module lib80211_crypt_tkip is loaded.
[ 3345.634935] wl: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
[ 3345.635508] wl: Unknown symbol lock_is_held (err 0)
[ 3345.635836] wl: Unknown symbol lockdep_rcu_dereference (err 0)
[ 3345.638942] wl: Unknown symbol debug_lockdep_rcu_enabled (err 0)
[ 3345.639606] wl: Unknown symbol debug_locks (err 0)
[ 3345.639925] wl: Unknown symbol rcu_sched_lock_map (err 0)
[ 3433.184248] lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
The kernel tainting is expected since it is a proprietary driver. However, I cannot find an explanation why these symbols cannot be located by the module. Any help is appreciated.
