Well, the answer depends on which driver claims the device.  The
bcm43xx driver will call it "eth1" but the bcm43xx-mac80211 driver
will call it "wlan0".

I mentioned this situation earlier (maybe in this same thread).
Unfortunately, upstream isn't ready to move "bcm43xx" to "bcm4301" (and
make the accomanying PCI ID changes) yet.  I'll have to noodle on this.
