Also, the required rc.conf options have changed and are mostly
incompatible.  The infrastructure is subject to change, but it's the
best I've been able to come up with so far.  Some sort of transition
tool might be in order.

If you the following in your rc.conf file:

ifconfig_ath0="DHCP WPA"

you should change it to:

vaps_ath0="wlan0"			# Any name will work
ifconfig_wlan0="DHCP WPA"		# Also change any other ath0 related
					# variables...

You if you wanted a more informative naming scheme you could do
something like:

ifconfig_ath0_sta="DHCP WPA"
