Since brcmsmac doesn't attempt to claim any ssb-based devices, why would there
be any conflict between an ssb-based Ethernet device and a brcmsmac device?
The ssb driver claims the ssb-based devices, and brcmsmac only claims the
AI-based chips that it supports.
There is currently a conflict between bcma and brcmsmac (hence the restriction
in drivers/staging/brcm80211/Kconfig), but, as I've said several times, we want
to move to using bcma as soon as possible. But we need to work with the
current version of bcma, which isn't available in staging.
