net-wireless/broadcom-sta-18.104.22.168-r6#2.6.31-sabayon not work!!! (Branch 5)

This driver not work because it's necessary to blacklist two modules.
For a working broadcom-sta driver it's necessary to run this two commands
# echo "blacklist ssb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
# echo "blacklist b43" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
I think this instruction should be printed when package was installed
Assign to Lxnay to get this minor usability change up streamed with Gentoo.
This is not our fault. Blame upstream (somewhere between kernel hackers and driver manufacturer).
