Hi all,

I've just finished putting together a version of the ath driver based on 
a merge of the current FreeBSD version with the latest Linux madwifi 
driver and HAL version  I included all of the features except 
for those not currently supported by FreeBSD's version of net80211 (e.g. 
only WEP crypto is supported).  Please test it out.  It may be too late 
to get this checked in before the code freeze, but I think it's our best 
bet to have a version of the ath driver with a recent HAL but without 
disturbing the shared net80211 code.

Download it here:

Extract into /usr/src.  The two machines I've tested it on are a Fujitsu 
Lifebook N5010 w/ builtin Atheros a/b/g, and a Vaio desktop with D-Link 
DWL-G520 (H/W Ver: B2).  dmesg output from the Fujitsu is:

ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xec010000-0xec01ffff irq 18 at device 10.0 on pci0
ath0: mac 5.6 phy 4.1 5ghz radio 3.6

and the desktop is:

ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xfeae0000-0xfeaeffff irq 22 at device 10.0 on pci2
ath0: mac 5.9 phy 4.3 5ghz radio 4.6
