I'm not sure if those two firmware files are equivalent or not.

There is a new version of b43-fwcutter in the git repository at 
git://git.bu3sch.de/b43-tools.git
that knows how to extract the firmware from 
URL http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-5.10.56.27.3_mipsel.tar.bz2.

After untarring, the object file is
broadcom-wl-5.10.56.27.3/driver/wl_apsta/wl_prebuilt.o
