mac80211 != Apple Mac

The bcm43xx-mac80211 driver is the bcm43xx port from the old Softmac stack to the newly merged Devicescape stack, it is not a different version of bcm43xx for Mac driver firmware.

Instead of making what I must assume was an educated guess, try reading a reputable source for Linux Wifi information, such as Jean Tourrilhes excellent web page. http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/Jean_Tourrilhes/Linux/
