: I does the card in question actually work when the ath modules aren't
: loaded?  What is the card anyway?  That error message doesn't sound like
: one that would ordinarly be caused by an driver.

"Card hs no functions" means that the (a) The bridge thought it was a
16-bit PC Card (never true for atheros) and (b) it couldn't read the
CIS.  If it was only (b), that indicates a resource problem with the
memory allocated to read the CIS.  Since it is both, I'm not sure.
Can you send me your dmesg boot -v privately?
