I'm running Rawhide on one of my machines. Since updating to the 4.0.x kernel versions, mi WiFi is no longer working:

sudo modprobe wl

returns a fatal error (module 'wl' not found). I have seen this before and was able to run

sudo akmods --akmod wl --force

to rebuild the module. However, this suddenly fails due to the GPL only symbol 'cpu_tss'.

sudo akmods --akmod wl --force
Checking kmods exist for 4.1.0-0.rc0.git8.1.fc23.x86_64    [  OK  ]
Building and installing wl-kmod                            [FAILED]

This is the output of the logfile:

2015/04/20 14:31:39 akmodsbuild: error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.nNeoCL (%build)

How can I fix this?
