CONFIG_BRCMFMAC=y means compiled into the kernel
CONFIG_BRCMFMAC=n leave out of the kernel compile
CONFIG_BRCMFMAC=m means BRCMFMAC is built as module that can used by doing modprobe brcmfmac as what sndwvs said

what you did, lsmod, it won't be there but then you did modprobe brcmfmac it will then be loaded

doing m or n reduces the size of the compile kernel

then you need to boot with the verbosity=7 parameter and look dmesg

Kernel command line: 8250.nr_uarts=0 bcm2708_fb.fbwidth=646 bcm2708_fb.fbheight=406 bcm2708_fb.fbswap=1 vc_mem.mem_base=0x3ec00000 vc_mem.mem_size=0x40000000 dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 verbosity=7

Do I do that with dmesg -n 7 or do I need to change a setting somewhere?

no, this is a boot option
echo 'dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 nofont root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rootfstype=ext4 rootwait ro verbosity=7' > /boot/cmdline.txt

No need to reboot to get kernel log verbosity 7. Just

Code:
echo 7 > /proc/sysrq-trigger

here it is still desirable when booting during hardware initialization

I still do not see anything different after the change.

How come the kernel and sarpi boot firmware package contains 2 files that are the same. Are they supposed to be installed in different locations?

according to the information provided glorsplitz firmware should be /lib/firmware/brcm/


ls /lib/firmware/brcm/ | grep brcmfmac43430-sdio

brcmfmac43430-sdio.AP6212.txt
brcmfmac43430-sdio.Hampoo-D2D3_Vi8A1.txt
brcmfmac43430-sdio.MUR1DX.txt
brcmfmac43430-sdio.bin
brcmfmac43430-sdio.raspberrypi,3-model-b.txt
brcmfmac43430-sdio.txt

based on everything should work, you need a detailed booting log, it’s also worth checking to see if WIFI works in the official distribution

I used to have the 32bit one installed before reinstalling to put the 64bit version on. And wifi worked then.
