Subject: b43: probe of bcma0:1 failed with error -524

Dear Linux folks,


On an Acer TravelMate 5735Z, Linux’ b43 driver logs a probe error.

The wireless device works, and it looks like it’s using the driver
brcmsmac. Should the b43 driver be involved for the device here? Though
I do not know what error -524 is exactly.


Kind regards,

Paul
