Atheros WIFI is not recognized on FreeBSD 8.0-RC1

I am facing some strange issue with recognizing the wifi card on my ASUS K40IN
pciconf -lv shows me the following:
none5 at pci0:5:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x10891a3b chip=0x002b168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
class = network
On wiki page http://wiki.freebsd.org/AsusEee#head-47f2e69f1dd87ec8920929cef682552933095ce6
there is the statement:
Wireless Atheros 9285 (supported in 8.0 only?) class=0x028000 card=0x10891a3b chip=0x002b168c rev=0xc0 hdr=0x00
the only difference is in "rev" property - 0x01 != 0xc0
The question is - is it possible to change something in the sources of kernel
so the card will be recognized? And can somebody please explain what I should
to try out?
Thank you in advance!
