@andreyv thanks and sorry. It indeed fixed all problems, I am on 4.8.1 now. Thanks again.

@farseerfc: As far as I can tell, the recently added patch fixes all three occurrences of cfg80211_scan_done(). Can you run the "dkms install ..." command manually and confirm that 004-linux48.patch is being applied?

My bcm-wl-dkms still have the issue on 4.8.1

@andreyv: I've tested and it works, thanks.

@panta: Thanks, I added the patch. Please test if it works for you.

The driver compiles but does not work on kernel 4.8 because of "kernel NULL pointer dereference at cfg80211_scan_done with kernel 4.8.0"[1]. The bug report includes a patch which fixes the issue.

@ranger: What is your version of this package, is it the latest one? Can you pastebin a build log?

@tpolgrabia: It builds fine for me on kernel 4.7.5. Try to update your package version.
