thanks for the hint. The controller should support MSI interrupts.

root at test10:/usr/src/sys # pciconf -lvbc

ath0 at pci0:5:0:0:        class=0x028000 card=0x30a4168c chip=0x002e168c

     cap 05[50] = MSI supports 1 message

     ecap 0003[160] = Serial 1 001517ffff241412
     ecap 0004[170] = Power Budgeting 1

But as I read in, MSI 
interrupts are not supported before AR9300 HAL.

So i'll buy an other card and try again.

But it would be a good idea to add the check for supported MSI/MSI-x 
interrupts to the .
