[bwn] add missing initvals for rev11 LP PHY.

We needed both the initvals and the band-switch initvals for rev11.
This was required for one of my BCM LP NICs.

[bwn] Initial support for the v5 firmware

This is just to support the initial v5 firmware for one of the PHY-N
NICs I'm going to do some development.

It only pulls out the specific v5 mimo firmware for the BCM4312 NIC
I am playing with; I'm adding it so we at least have the framework
to pull things out of the v5 firmware.

The existing NICs still use v4 firmware and I don't plan on changing
that for some time as bwn(4) doesn't yet support the newer firmware API
and descriptor layouts.

Convert to USES=kmod, which removes duplicated code and ensures that all
required steps are followed.

There are no user-visible changes.  The exception is multimedia/ptx-kmod,
which now installs the kernel module into /boot/modules instead of
${PREFIX}/libexec/${PORTNAME}, this was something USES=kmod cannot handle.

Port to extract the v4.x firmware for Broadcom airforce parts.
Necessary for the up-coming bwn driver.  Marked NO_PACKAGE because we
