I recently had the need to compile this against Linux 4.13 (from current xenial hwe-edge).

I was able to use patches 0023-add-support-for-Linux-4.11.patch and 0024-add-support-for-Linux-4.12.patch from bcmwl_6.30.223.271+bdcom-0ubuntu1~1.2 as the basis for creating 0014-add-support-for-linux-4.11.0.patch and 0015-add-support-for-linux-4.12.0.patch on top of Gerry's excellent bcmwl-kernel-source_6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu7 above.

I'm now able to run bcmwl in Linux 4.13 on this hardware to get reasonable wifi speed, without the random system lockups that exhibited.

The patches are attached, in case anyone has the same problem, or feels like packaging them properly (I sure don't; this is a temporary hack and I didn't even bother with DKMS: just compile, cp to new dir under /lib/modules/4.13.0-25-generic, depmod and modprobe).
