Alright, so I tried to modify the broadcom .inf file to include my
chipset revision, but I ran into an unexpected problem: I can't edit
the file! The only program I've found that will even display the thing
is "more", everything else just gives me binary garbage. I've tried
fiddling with locale settings and running the file through iconv, but
that didn't help.
The file command identifies the file as
bcmwl5.inf: MPEG ADTS, layer I, v1, 96 kBits, 32 kHz, Stereo
... which doesn't seem quite right. A hexdump of the start of the file
0000000 feff 003b 003b 000d 000a 003b 003b 0020
0000010 0062 0063 006d 0077 006c 0035 002e 0069

0000080 0074 0069 006f 006e 002e 000d 000a 003b
Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Looks like it's in UTF-16, not the usual UTF-8. Although the usual depends on where you're from I guess.
iconv --from-code UTF-16 --to-code UTF-8 <inputfile> > <outputfile>
and convert it back once you're done, or not. You might also be able to modify your locale settings LANG/LC_CTYPE etc... vi/vim supposedly handles it, not that I'd want to input each character with Cntrl+V u 0<decimal> or Cntrl+V u <hex>.
Then there's that 32 bit driver on a 64 bit system thing.
