Some, but not all, of the driver's functionality is available in
ath(4).  [Some of the earliest (partially-)open-source Atheros support
started in FreeBSD, but the Linux drivers borrowed from this, and
offer more features at the moment.] There is work being done to add
more in -CURRENT -- see, for example:

The freebsd-current and freebsd-mobile mailing lists are better for this topic.
