:) That's going to take some time, but it's on the cards.

I really need to first figure out exactly why the AR9280/AR9285
support is so unstable for people.
There's one user who has reported a regression from if_ath in -8 to
what's in HEAD.
I'm working with him at the moment to nail down the cause(s).

This is why I really do need this tested as much as possible. I'll put
up instructions on how to build if_ath as a module (that's what I'm
doing on my RELENG_8 EEEPC - I'm running the HEAD if_ath on it for
testing on the AR9280) and then sort out any and all issues on the
AR5416, AR9160, AR9280 and AR9285.

Throwing 11n into the mix right now is just a bit too much for me to take on. :)
