Network manager is unable to setup wifi after upgrade.

I recently upgraded to libnl-3.2.7-1 and networkmanager- and since network manager is unable to setup the wifi. It loops through all the available wifi network and always fails to connect to one of them.

If I downgrade to libnl-1.1-3 and networkmanager, and restart NetworkManager it works as usual.

But weirdly, on the next reboot, networkmanager complains about "device not ready". The only solution I have found to make it works is to update to the latest available version, restart NetworkManager, then downgrade and restart NetworkManager again.

My wifi adaptors is a 01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01). I'm "up to date" in the extra repository (except for some X packages).
This task depends upon
