comment How do I get the right wireless modules to load at startup for a BCM4322?
Sorry, I do not mean to answer, merely wanted to ask this in a comment, but I do not yet have enough reputation to be able to comment. When you added brcmsmac and wl to blacklist.conf - Did you add them as install brcmsmac /bin/false or blacklist brcmsmac ? What happens if you try the other method?

comment How to force a proprietary driver to load on startup (revisited)
And to answer your last question, the thing that makes me think it didn't work, is the fact that a, the output of lshw -C network and dmesg tells me that the rtl8192cu driver is used instead of 8192cu, and b, after insertion of another USB device, I experience the same issues as many who had to install the proprietry driver to get the device to function properly. (see e.g. here)

mikewhatever, I read somewhere that if the blacklist commands are used in blacklist.conf, the kernel might still load those modules under certain conditions. The install <module> /bin/false command tells the kernel to never install the module apparently. But as you can see, I've tried both - it makes no difference.

strings - yes, that is exactly what I am trying to achieve - for the 8192cu driver to be loaded at boot time. But, as can be seen from the output of sudo lshw -C network, the rtl8192cu driver is loaded instead
