 FWIW my ath 9285 is working fine on 8.2-STABLE.
 I'm running release, though. I'm not exactly cvs proficient, I prefer
subversion- just installing it is a PITA atm- so how do I bring in the
stable version of the driver?
I'm assuming also, then, that I will have to recompile my kernel won't
I? Any particular reason why ath is not a loadable module?
