bcm43xx module preference

After discussion in the Network Wizard forum thread, I have added a preference for the 'ssb' module when it and the 'bcm43xx' module are claiming the same hardware. The PREFLIST variable is in /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG:

#PREFLIST: sometimes there are two hits, that is, two modules match the same

#'modalias'. In such a case, here we can specify a preference. Each entry
#here is of the form 'module1:module2' where module2 is the preferred choice.
PREFLIST=' rt2500usb:rt73usb ath_pci:ath5k orinoco_nortel:hostap_plx orinoco_plx:hostap_plx orinoco_tmd:hostap_plx orinoco_pci:hostap_pci martian_dev:ltserial bcm43xx:ssb '
