Bug description:
  SRU request:


   * As a result of this bug, bcmwl-kernel-source will fail to build the
  module against linux-generic-lts-utopic in Ubuntu 14.04.2.

  [Test Case]

   * Enable the trusty-proposed repository and install bcmwl-kernel-
  source (

   * Install linux-generic-lts-utopic

   * If the package installs without errors from DKMS with both the
  linux-generic and linux-generic-lts-utopic kernels, then the patches
  work correctly.

  [Regression Potential]

   * The patches that I backported from 15.04 will preserve the current
  driver behaviour on linux-generic (3.13) and linux-generic-lts-utopic
  (3.16), thanks to the use of specific macros in the code which check
  the kernel version. As a result, no regressions of any kind can be
  expected on these kernels. As a plus, support for kernels up to 3.18
  is also included.
