Broadcom Reboot & Suspend Problems

Hi Forum,

I have recently worked through the Broadcom trials (see More Broadcom Problems post) and gotten my Dell TrueMobile internal Broadcom device to work with the wl_apsta.o file and bcm43xx-fwcutter. However, I'm not able to connect to the network when I reboot my machine or suspend using Ubuntu (Feisty). My laptop completely crashes whenever I try to Hibernate, but I'm not sure if that is a related issues. For now, I've gotten around the reboot problem by installing a simple startup script to modprobe -r bcm43xx and modprobe bcm43xx again, which seems to work fine. This doesn't seem to work following a suspend though. If anyone has encountered this and can give me any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
