Most seem to be on 3.2 and 3.4, but I've heard people say Broadcom now has 
BSP for 4.1.

However, since basically all high-speed devices use a hardware packet 
accelerator, even with newer kernels you might not get anti-bufferbloat 
benefit because these packet accelerators have their own buffer handling.

I might be in the position to test one of these broadcom 4.1 based devices 
in the next few months, I'll run some tests and report back if that
