It's included into 8.0-CURRENT-200809-i386 snapshot if I understand correctly.

I've tried 7.1-BETA and 8.0-CURRENT-200809 on my eeepc model 701
7.1 does not recognize ath0, as expected, but 8.0-CURRENT does.
The corresponding dmesg can be found here :
The 8.0-CURRENT-200809-i386 contain ath_hal 0.10.5.10 but I was unable
to use the interface. "dhclient ath0" never give up. Let me know if I
can try something.
In the past I had success with 7.0 code base + madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.hal
I was able to use ath with dhclient and wpa_supplicant.
And what about the rj45 interface for eee 701 ? Any chance to be supported
in a near future ?
