It might not be obvious, but the .tar.gz file I pointed at with
http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/b/bcm5700/
contains the original .tar.gz source code as obtained from broadcom.
You can get this source code from *any* debian mirror that mirrors
debian unstable or testing.
And no, it will not go into the kernel.
Just read up on coding standards, and read the driver source.
The driver is good, but is *too* different in coding style to intergrate
it into the kernel.
