It's working for me in 4.8.8: https://gist.github.com/Ikke/4c5a894db811a2a890e07d3ceb6328c5

I must say that it worked for me in older versions too though.

Can some please confirm if it is working on 4.8.8-2-ARCH

I managed to get rid of the "defer" error, though I'm not quite sure how. The only thing I did while playing around was to load the "b43" module, which didn't work (expectedly) with my hardware. After that, I reinstalled broadcom-wl-dkms, rebooted (or, rather, powered off and on again) and for some reason it started working again.

Maybe loading "b43" probed the hardware in a weird way? Or maybe it was just a coincidence.

Anyway, I'm running 4.8.8-2-ARCH now and my BCM4360 works.

It's not working for me on 4.8.8-1 on a Macbook pro with a BCM43602 802.11ac

I can confirm that this works with 4.8.7-1-ARCH as of yesterday (Nov 15 2016). Can anyone confirm/disconfirm whether it works properly on 4.8.8-1-ARCH?

I'm also getting the `defer` error when using it. Unfortunately I can't downgrade my kernel as the kernel included some fixes for my macbook. Is there a workaround for it?
