NAME
     bcma - Broadcom AMBA Backplane driver

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device bhnd
           device bcma

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           bcma_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The bcma driver provides bhnd(4) support for devices using the ARM AMBA-
     based backplane architecture found in later Broadcom Home Networking
     Division's (HND) wireless chipsets and embedded systems.

     A common interconnect connects all of the backplane's functional blocks.
     These functional blocks, known as cores, use the ARM AMBA AXI or APB
     interface to communicate with devices attached to the interconnect.

     The IP cores used in siba(4) devices were adapted by Broadcom for
     compatibility with the new interconnect.
