Ah, of course, duh -- I forgot about the CaPiTalIzAtion of the device 
name gets pulled into config(5) with the 'device' keyword. Thanks for 
the reminder...

This is a much cleaner fix for the issue than forcing the option to be 
set on always. It looks like HEAD has this issue too and this can go 
right in there.

Are we happy with AH_SUPPORT_AR5416 being enabled in 7.x GENERIC?
The 'out of box' config hasn't been broken by the change and this is 
identical to to the situation in HEAD as far as I can see.
