I see that by lines changed, Broadcom is the top contributor. But I suspect their work is only in device drivers.
And device drivers that have been accused of being an ocular carcinogen, at that. A decent driver would probably have been a lot fewer lines; especially if it'd added to the existing b43 driver infrastructure instead of reinventing a bunch of stuff for itself.
These statistics should probably exclude the drivers/staging directory of the kernel. In fact, I think it would be better if Linus' tree didn't include the staging crap at all, and it was only in an external repository.
