I think your idea is correct, I was just thinking about bcm47xx_nvram
copying content to provided buffer, instead of sharing its own. I got
an impression it's solution usually used when dealing with such
situations & this would also protect bcm47xx internals.

I'm not really sure how to submit this patch. It exports symbol and
will be required by brcmfmac, so I guess we should ask Kalle to pick
it. However I also planned moving nvram.c from mips to bcm47xx_nvram.c
in firmware and I planned to submit this patch to Ralf (mips

Maybe it'll be better to work on moving NVRAM driver first? This would
make more sense to Kalle accepting drivers/firmware/ patch rather than
arch/mips/. We could keep this change in OpenWrt for now. I could
submit patch to Ralf for 3.2 kernel. Then for 3.3 we could finally
upstream your change to Kalle's tree.

Can you also share your brcmfmac patch?
