New Revision: 229790

  Commit a temporary workaround for people who are building kernels
  where they've disabled all the wireless devices/framework.
  This is just a build workaround. If you're actively using wireless,
  you must still define AH_SUPPORT_AR5416 as I'm not sure what else
  will break!
  The real solution is to make the module build depend if AH_SUPPORT_AR5416
  is defined, as well as make the 11n code in if_ath_tx.c and if_ath_tx_ht.c
  completely optional (maybe depend upon ATH_SUPPORT_11N.)
