You can always recompile your own kernel that suits your need

the drivers are there: like written in the archlinux bug above, the conflict is only at kernel configuration time (enabling one driver doesn't let you build the other).

do a make menuconfig in the kernel source tree and deselect the BCMA support in "device drivers" -> "broadcom specific AMBA", then you can enable brcmsmac in "device drivers" -> "network device support" -> "wireless lan": tried now in a 3.2 source tree and the module builds fine.
