uath under FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE

I installed FreeBSD8.0-RELEASE so I could see if it's compatible with my
Netgear WG111T (this is newly supported in 8.0).
Not surprising, uath (the new driver) is not in GENERIC (oopps, yes it is), so
I copied GENERIC to LAPTOP3 and commented out most of the drivers, since I
don't need them. I ensured that uath was not commented.
Please note, as I wrote this I checked GENERIC and uath IS there, but it
didn't get loaded because I don't see it with ifconfig...
I added KERNCONF=LAPTOP3 to /etc/make.conf, went to /usr/src and rebuilt just
the kernel, figuring the world was already sync'ed with GENERIC.
The uath isn't showing up after a reboot. Do I need to buildworld/installworld
or do I have to use uathload to load firmware? I figure the device already has
firmware and I'd only have to use uathload if I got newer firmware from
