Hi Folks,

Just curious about the status of the atheros driver. There's 
an embedded side-project I'm working on that requires it and my
two current choices seem to be FreeBSD 5.x or NetBSD 2.x ...

I have a test version lying around which gives a reproducable segfault
in the HAL. Not really useful and Sam Leffler wasn't helpful too.
ATM you are better to use NDIS under DragonFly.
Only to bad that NDIS doesnt work with my chipset, however, my chipset 
seemed reasonable stable with the (pré-merge from Sam about 1,5 month 
ago) driver in FreeBSD current, I'm curious when the segfault occurs and 
if all chipset suffer under it?
