Latest working kervel: 2.6.28 series.
i can reproduce it every time.
1. trigger disable button. b43 is detecting this action and is disabling well.
2. trigger enable button. nothing happen. doing that couples of time still the wireless can't be enabled.
3. with the button enabled I've reloaded b43 module. then is entering in a loop like in the log and is stopping only when i trigger disable and then enable button.
latest working version 2.6.28 series.

Did you ever try a 2.6.29 kernel? I'm curious if it was broken there as well?
yes. i had tried that version and was broken there too.
