Looks like I'm late to the party. I was responsible for committing these 
ath(4) changes to RELENG_7.
I can't remember if I tested the kernel compile without the 
AH_SUPPORT_AR5416 option or not, I have been so incredibly busy.

So is there a consensus that this seems to break the build for folk who 
do not need this option?
If so I can see about committing the necessary changes to turn this 
option on by default. I needed the option for what I was trying to do.

Of course if someone already has a patch for that, that will help, as I 
don't have a lot of free time at the moment but can certainly commit a 
quick fix if someone already has one.
