Yes, because of how the wlan/ath modules are built. You need to have
AH_SUPPORT_AR5416 in the kernel config file, as the driver/module
currently doesn't build without it.

I'll eventually fix that, but right now I just want to leave that
option in and not hack up the Makefile to define said option.
Otherwise other options (eg enabling 11n, enabling hal debugging, etc)
are completely ignored when building modules.

Same with IEEE80211_SUPPORT_MESH i believe. I should really re-verify that.
