The new hal will not work with the existing code in cvs--that's why you
need the patches :)
I don't intend to commit this hal. There's not been enough feedback and
it's already several months out of date (i.e. there are fixes that I
want to include in any new hal I commit).
That said, the hal is definitely an improvement over what's in cvs and
folks should see no regression from using it--so long as the also apply
the ath+net80211 patches.
