DMA errors are well known issue happening with b43.

Quote from http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 :
LP-PHY devices: DMA errors on some machines with kernel 2.6. Problem was
fixed in 3.0. Using PIO (module param) can be used as workaround for 2.6.

The bug was fixed in 3.0 kernel.

Solutions for you:
1) Update kernel in your openSUSE to 3.0 or newer
2) Install still-experimental-for-now openSUSE 12.1
3) Do "rmmod b43 && modprobe b43 pio=1" as root
